So this past weekend I was in the studio quite a bit. I'm working on some new canvases, but occasionally I take a break and look at some of the ones that have been lying around the studio for a while and decide I've had enough of one. I can't remember when I painted these flowers on the Naples background, but I was never happy with them. Just blah. I'm exploring a new style which is much less rigid and uses a lot linear strokes - you might just call it scratchy or sloppy. I love painting this way. It is very liberating to place strokes on the canvas without trying to be exact. For those of you who know me - I do not like to waste a canvas - or paint for that matter. Yes, I've been known to try to scoop it back into a tube. I'll be taking the new version of these flowers, along with many other new creations to Jekyll Island in September. I will be posting many new things between now and then, I'm sure. As always, thanks for taking a moment to look and read, and I appreciate your interest and support.
