"Polka Cups" --- SOLD
I painted this with the specific goal of loosening up. I was inspired by the loose paintings of Sally Cummings Shisler, my long-distance daily painting buddy. It was really tough to keep the proportions correct while being loose at the same time. In fact, painting loose is tough for me because it's ... unreal. Errr, in real life, the edges are straight and perfect and crisp, and painting loose means kind of suggesting those edges without adhering too much to reality.
I have 2 words tacked to my wall beside my easel. One is "squint," and the other is "interpret."
