"First One In" - SOLD
I love the reflected blue here. It was one of those situations where I happened upon it and thought "woah, that's cool!" I have to admit most of my compositions happen by accident. I have some vague ideas in my mind ahead of time, sometimes, but mostly I just play around with stuff until I like what I see, and then I paint it. I had a student once specifically watch me while I composed. It took forever (I get nervous when people watch) : ) and after a while I turned to her and said "are you getting anything from this?" and she said "yep, now I won't feel so bad when it takes ME a long time." That made me feel better too.
