Another painting experiment. I have been listening to these Craig Mullins lectures lately, about not getting caught up in the rules of art so to speak. I dont think I am anywhere near a point where I should really be breaking them, but tonights inspiration was trying to make a paining without killing the white of the canvas. Basically just making random strokes with different brushes until something start to happen...I guess this is the result...some sort of mountainous river area.

Some more practice. I am starting to feel a lot more
optimistic about art lately. Not that I feel anywhere near confident in anything I am doing. But I am starting to feel like I can get to where I want to be if I keep at it. There is so much to learn but I am starting to have more fun now. I have been reading a lot of Richard Schmid lately, that guy has really opened my eyes. I only hope I can somehow apply a fraction of what he speaks of in his book "Alla Prima" to what I am trying to do. He really makes me want to do oils again though.

On a side note, if anyone who views this blog has any crits or suggestions on what I should focus on or practice I would love to hear what you think. Happy Holidays :)
