No Expectations

Moonlight was painted without any reference, on a night I had watched the moon come up from my deck. Frustrated with some physical issues that have prevented me from painting plein air this summer, I just went into the studio without any plan. 

Why not just push paint around? No expectations, no agenda. 

Not how I usually work at all, but it worked without my having to try too hard. 

Magic. Do you believe in magic? Let go and see what happens.

Finished & SOLD!

 So happy to finally finish this big 36x36” painting. It started with a DM from an old friend, and I took on the challenge- big and happy flowers with a white background. Hollyhocks and roses, images I had saved just because! In the meantime, I got Covid (even though I am fully vaccinated) and everything went on hold until I got my energy back. I contacted my friend and explained that the painting was finished and that she had no obligation to buy it but she fell in love and now everyone is thrilled. I was inspired to paint these images and am just delighted that my vision touched her heart. Thank you!
