I always want to get loose after painting commissions. It is impossible for me to paint commissions as loosely as I would like to paint because it has to look like someone's somebody or some thing. I have been painting over several older pieces. It is so invigorating painting with a palette knife. It is a great way to loosen your work up. This piece is painted on an 11 x 14".
This is my favorite time of the year because I will be painting lots of new things for Spring shows. Several ideas swimming around in my head.
