Big Old Painting in Progress


Hey  guys....remember this canvas?  Been a while since I have been able to work on it!  it has been so long I honestly can't remember when I started it. The kids love it and are constantly nagging at me to finish it, but have been so busy getting ready for the summer season!  Took some time last night to work on it.  I love painting BIG!  There is just something about a large canvas in front of me that makes my heart leap for joy!  Working with layers on a huge white canvas always jogs my memory that there are no mistakes.  This type of bold large painting is a fun way that helps me relax and let the painting tell me what it wants to do.  Painting gigantic is really my "happy place", even though my time, and wallet want to tell me something different.  Maybe I should start listening to my inner voice. Below are a few pictures of the painting in progress.  A few more layers and now I am beginning to work on details.  Stay tuned.  My goal for this "bad-boy" is to have it done by the end of May!

P.s. Can you believe it? Another blog post???  Yep, I am REALLY TRYING HARD to turn it around.  My goal is 2-3 posts a week and I expect you guys to get on my case if I haven't done it!  Bring on the blogging!  Hip-Hip-Hooray!
