Mardi Gras Painting
It’s the party without the hangover!
When working on this Mardi Gras painting the focus was on working with transparent layers and a palette knife. I love the freedom of expression with abstract painting. There is something so profoundly satisfying to let loose and just follow your intuition. That’s always been part of the allure for me.
Plus I absolutely adore the vibrant colors in this painting, so many varying layers and so much interest, you could get lost in this painting while looking at all the details.
Meditating helps me to come up with ideas for abstract paintings
I’ve committed to stepping up my meditative practice this year. I feel it almost a necessary “grounding” for continued well-being in the midst of the geopolitical turmoil these days. Hey, some people, write poetry, some cook, some garden. I meditate and paint. For me, there’s no doubt that meditating has influenced and perhaps even helped my practice – at least that’s how I feel.
Well, gotta run, there’s an easel and some gesso’ed canvas just screaming my name!
Love and paint splashes,
