You might see from my Avatar that I’m likely to be attracted to this one!
Thanks for all your comments. Actually my very first artistic endeavor a very very long time ago was black and white photography in ye old darkroom. That was magical!
Well, I don’t have a dark room, but I’m about to embark on a short project using a couple of old folding cameras that I bought at a club auction. I’m looking forward to getting the smell of chemicals up my nose again! :)
Here’s to all our future art endeavors and their associated chemical smells…darkroom or studio (add coffee in the mix, too…. got to have that while painting!
in my case that would be tea! ;)
Anita, the brushstrokes in this one are stunning. You seem to have crafted a look in this painting like it was an impulsive, “Zen-On” experience for you (whether that was the case or not!) I am very taken with your new work – look forward to seeing more!
Thanks so much! The strokes are made with a very fine sable hair brush as opposed to the normal hog bristle. The painting came together very quickly and I decided to stop. That is the hardest thing sometimes, because you get into a habit of expecting it to take a certain amount of time and effort. “Zen-On” it was! Thanks so much for your comments!
