so back in february i took a painting eclass with flora bowley called bloom true. i did not take the class to learn how to paint (i've been painting almost as long as flora has!) i took the class because i was so drawn to flora's philosophy of painting and life, and because the idea of just letting a painting unfold with no preset idea of what was going to emerge was about as opposite of me as one could possibly get.
i couldn't pass the opportunity up. and i cannot even express to you how glad i am that i didn't!
so, here is the first of two paintings created through the class. and just to prove how i truly had no idea where it was going through a good portion of the process, i am adding a quick slide show at the bottom to show you the stages...how this painting revealed itself to me.
here's the evolution of "the great divide" 18" x 18" acrylic on canvas 2012
and, this week, here's to evolving...and blooming true!
