Pink Cloud ~ Daily Painting

daily painting

I have been experimenting lately. I am experimenting with bold color shapes. Pink Cloud is a wonderful example.

As you may know, my painting method involves gestural calligraphy and intuitive color use. This approach has served me well. It’s a fine line between thinking too much and just doing it. We are talking about the marriage between head and heart here!

A dear friend asked me once, ‘why I paint so rapidly?’ I’m sure she was thinking, ‘if she would slow down and do it carefully, she wouldn’t have to re-do it so many times!’

What happens when I try to do it carefully, is that I have too much control of how it goes down. More importantly, the creator has too little influence when I hold the brush so tightly!

Cutting loose is a fine balance. Creating a dance between head and heart in which neither gets toes stepped on ~ and both shine!

Shine on!
