Another new year.
More new painting.
Every time I stop painting and start again,
new stuff appears. It might be a painting tool
or a shape I haven't used before.
I want my art to be loose and free feeling.
My background is in perfect lines and
shapes. I stuggle all the time to find the
imperfection in the lines I draw.
The art I love is wild, imaginative
and very free. With lots of great color.
This is "Bandit" - a chicken or a rooster -
honestly, I don't know the physical differences.
They all look like chickens to me.
This is as loose as I can get.
The new stuff is using lots of oil pastels on the
painted surface. Am also carving rubber stamps
to incorporate in my paintings.
The star in the sky is a new stamp.
I wish I could find giant white erasers.
They make the best stamps.
