A Pear to Share 7x5 acrylic




I love doing these no fuss, fast drying, crazy color acrylic paintings. One thing is I am not hung up on what I am doing. I'm not looking at a still life. It is totally made up and all about learning color balance. I am an over blender with a strong fear of bright color. This is like therapy!!!!! the artists answer to journaling. I can work in my pajamas and shuffle about releasing emotions through paint. It is rhythmic and relaxing and very playful. Play is a very important thing in art and LIFE. Permission granted to stick your fingers in the paint.

Kewl! I just redid some pears in wacky colors, but they're not as loose. I've also wanted to play with adding pattern in the background sort of like Gustav Klimt or Kay Nielsen. Nice!
