Been doing some painting, just for myself. I thought it'd be good to do some painting just for myself, with no expectations and no rules attached -- just to reconnect with doing stuff without anything attached to it other than my own subconscious visual ramblings. :) I also missed the feel of paint with body since I usually use watercolor these days, so I am using acrylic paint which I used to use a lot, so I know the medium and feel comfortable with it and could jump right in. I also wanted to painting on something that would not warp for a change. No matter how fabulous the watercolor paper I use is, it's still paper, and paper warps when it gets wet. So I am using Gessobord, which is panels you buy pre-gessoed, and they're great . I love working small, so this is 5x5. My plan is to do a bunch of them and then put them on Etsy . (I *LOVE* Etsy. Wow, is it great!) But for now, I'm just posting this one so far.
Here is my second effort. (No you are not missing anything; I haven't posted the first one yet.) "Good Dog" is a painting of a little black pug. You know, it looks mysteriously like our very special and genius first pug Guinness, who was my creative muse! He is showing up again here as the model for "Good Dog". Hope you like this piece! Please tell me what you think. I'd love to hear.
