I have had a lovely day today, a day when I have made a commitment to myself to paint, to experiment, to follow the whim of the moment. And this I have done....and the day isn't over yet!
Recently I discovered Jean Haines and this wonderful book, Atmospheric Conditions. She has amazing use of colour, freedom and excitement in her paintings. I absolutely love her work, her subjects and her hints of more. I have always felt I have needed to loosen up with my paintings and have been endeavouring to do so. Jean adds another dimension for me. Using colours that I can't see, but when she uses them they bring all the excitement and freshness so that I just want to keep looking at them....what else am I able to see!
Jean is coming to Australia soon but her workshops are booked out....by the time I knew about her, the workshops were booked. I'm hoping she will return in the future and it might be possible to be amongst the attendees, here's hoping!
So this is my work today, a long way to go but can already see a freshness that wasn't there...perhaps! Maybe it is wishful thinking!
Also I think I have nearly all my favourite bloggers back on my sidebar. If you can't see your blog and know that it has been please forgive me and let me know. Sometimes my senior's moments take over!
