Early Outing

24x20 oil on canvas

This painting was rather cathartic... its loose and large and it felt good to use large brushes and really push the paint around using my whole body. Its a little indistinct and impressionistic and I tried to keep it light in tone by not using too many darks. I think I needed to open up a bit after working so small in the last months.

I can relate to the good feeling of working larger. I have pushed myself lately to do paintings more than twice what I usually work at. Though I must say that yesterday's painting has a special quality to it. It's simply gorgeous!
