So this is where I am at with my painting. It has been great getting used to the paints again. I think I may go back into it a bit and adjust some but I don't want to over work the thing and lose it. I am trying to not think to much when painting. I really liked working with these bright colors but yesterday I looked through a home decor magazine and fell in love with a soothing blue/green/white palette so I am feeling like I need to paint in that palette next.
I have a stack load of books on request from the library, some on creativity and some on techniques. I don't feel like I am adhering to any particular technique with my painting just going with the flow. Trying different things. I figure if I don't like it I can always gesso over it. I listened to this Craftcast podcast recently. It is with Mary Todd Beam. I really enjoyed her views about painting. Now her books are on my wish list. They didn't have them at the library.
In other news.. the sun is shining today and the temp is 67 F. The snow has just about melted and they are calling for much of the same through Sunday!! See you later winter. Hello Spring!
I hope your week has been great so far!
