I have tried for a few years now to paint portraits. I am realizing I just do not enjoy creating realism. Maybe because it is too much of a challenge for me (very possible) or maybe its because abstract is just more interesting to me. Either way I grabbed a canvas board the other night along with some paynes gray and white welcoming whatever showed up.
Whenever I paint this way I always feel as though parts of myself spill out onto the canvas. I suppose each of us leave small parts of ourselves within our work. Whether its images or words it would be hard not to. As artists our work comes from a deeper place, one that we may not even be aware of. And that place can be very powerful . . .
Linking up with Paint Party Friday today :)
