I try to simplify shapes and stroke work. It may appear to the novice that it was easy to paint. It is a skill that comes after hours and hours of painting. When I first started painting I tortured and overworked my paintings trying to add every detail. I knew I wanted a looser look but that did not come until after logging in lots of easel time. The more you paint, the more confidence you build to become bolder with your strokes and knowing what to edit out. I TRY to remember what so many of my instructors have shared and that is to think about every stroke before you apply it to the canvas. Make it count. Sometimes I remember.
This is painted on a 6 x 6 x 2" canvas.

I spent the day at my sister and brother in law's home yesterday and they had some fairly new chicks. It was so fun to hold and watch them. I took a few (300) pictures. I am going to have fun with some of the titles. This one is painted on a 6 x 8 x 2" canvas.sold

This is making me want to give in to my husband's desire to get a big dog. I do not have anything against it I just remember how much work it is. I Need to remember how much fun it is.
This is painted on a 24 x 36 x 2" canvas so that is my reason for including a second picture. Hard to appreciate the scale without a visual. This is going to be hung over their camp house mantle. Pure fun!sold
