Do you ever have one of those days where you really needed a release?
Well, thankfully I don't very often; however,
I found a way to channel that energy into something joyful!
I tried something new with these two marshes.
I used my acrylics to paint a very energetic underpainting,
with lots of texture and color.
I actually squeezed the tube directly on the canvas at one point and
used wood to scrape it through...
It was full-body painting, boder-lining on frenzy!
I actually pulled my shoulder!
The next day I came back,
a wee bit sore but much more relaxed, and painting oil on top.
The extreme textures helped me be loose.
It was a ton of fun!
It was Pure Joy!

Amber Waves 36x48 Acrylic & Oil
With all of my heart I can say, I hope you enjoy these as much as I did painting them!
(With out the soreness, that is!)
A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him,
but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.
