I am not quite sure how but since this storm my art seems to be changing. I suppose due to the emotion of it all. I am liking where it is going. It is starting to feel more like "me". Yesterday I posted my first painting where the change can be felt. Just visit my last post for details on "eye of the storm"
This face emerged from a messy background. I used watercolor crayons and gesso mixing them together with my hands. Then I looked around and saw what looked like eye shapes from the background. I decided to go for it. I typically don't like to paint a face but this messy imperfect thing feels right to me. I didn't care that the eyes were lopsided or the nose was too long. I added the pink along the top for "hair". The drips just felt right.

Speaking of parties, Julie Prichard from Land of Lost Luggage is hosting one of her own. Actually it is an art gallery tour and I am excited to have some of my work featured along with other great artists who have taken classes with her and Chris Cozen. I have taken many a class with them and they are fab! Be sure to stop by Julie's blog for the first leg of the tour!
