A road less traveled

This has been a rather remarkable painting day for me, and not in a good way.

Anyway, I scraped four canvases, three of which had a black base coat on them. Was trying to do the technique I did yesterday that I enjoyed so much, and for reasons I will never know it just was not going to happen today. So I switched to another (new) technique and that was also not happening.

When time came to scrape canvas #5 it seemed to me like I had to change my attitude. I played with the paint which is very, very thin and moves easily….and suddenly I looked down and was like, wow. That’s really pretty interesting. Far from my usual, and may never do anything like it again, but I’m keeping it. It has both texture and movement, plus a feeling of mystery to me. Nice.
