Flying into meaning

12" x 12" wood, acrylic, oil pastel, colored pencil

I sooo love painting most of the painting with my hands and finger tips. This connects me with my paintings on a level that is hard to describe..., and I can feel the spirit of my work take on meaning as I create. Painting almost backwards, from the negative, gives new insights, and a feeling I have never felt before. I now have completed 4 of these paintings. The larger one (2' x 4') awaits my re-do. Daunting me,,, I need to get over my fear of painting so large or (re-painting so large).

cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this painting is. there is a depth to the shapes and the texture is unreal. vibrant colors as always, but there's just something MORE. i like.
