Experimental Painting
June 20, 2011

Today I did a very fast painting.   I need to do a fast painting at least every day and have a few that are in process that are more planned.  But gestural works are fun to do.
I've seen some wonderful paintings done by some other artists recently that inspired me to PAINT.   I have a tendency to dream and not to do.   Dream paintings are perfect y'know, unlike the ones where you actually move the paint around on a surface.
There was no thought prior to this...truthfully it was squirting paint on a panel I had and moving it around very quickly with a big brush.   I used Golden Fluid Acrylics, a new kind of paint for me.  Like the paint!  There are all kinds of things wrong with this painting.  For instance, there is a weird spot in the middle where all the paint came together.  The white paint creates a bullseye effect.   But there are some passages in it I enjoy.   And I remind myself that doing some fast paintings is very good practice.
Now, it would be interesting to go back into this painting with some other colors and subdue the pink and add some green and fix some spots.  Hmmmmm.  We'll see.
