I love, love, love trying new things. I am very blessed to have several commissions to complete but I have been following some impressionistic, intuitive artists lately and I am intrigued with placing paint on the canvas and moving it about and pushing and pulling it until an image appears. It is so much fun and creates a "looseness" and a "freedom" that is seldom experienced when you, as the artist have a specific plan in mind. This is a little canvas - 5" x 7" and I have it on my desk and I feel like this little Mermaid is saying, "Hey, thanks. I just wanted to be painted."
