painting bigger and bolder in the studio
lights are on, music in the air, i'm in the zone.
a couple of days ago, i was frustrated over not being able to paint. those frustrations were so strong. weird. crazy. instead of getting mad at myself, i accepted. i let go of my need to paint and did what felt right in that moment. i was guided to go bigger and bolder.
a couple of days later, i am presented with a gift. a gift from the angels.
know that each moment there are unlimited possibilities waiting for you.
i am chosen to be the vibrant portrait artist for a high end gallery in downtown georgetown.
and what do they want? large and colorful patriotic portraits.
exactly what i felt. genius. YES!
i've got the canvases primed with a white ground (gesso). i'm waiting on more gesso so i can coat both sides of the boards. i decided to use MDF board for the rigidity and texture. i like the feel. it's what is working for me right now.
funny, how one day I'm so angry and the next, i've got 4 of my biggest paintings. love it!
fast forward a few days, the underpaintings are complete on 2 out of 4.
