This is part of my intuitive painting series. That’s where you show up, throw paint, make marks and not have a preconceived notion of what you are going to paint… Things evolve and the artist themselves is just as surprised as anyone with what is created.
The strangest things come out and they are always different from one another!
At this point I started to see the tree…
Then the only thing I liked about the painting was the tree!I was going to scrap the painting entirely by throwing more paint on top of it. My first change-up was that big black stroke in the sky. I was going to put big black strokes all over the entire thing, but after the first one, the painting became a little more interesting to me…so I kept going with it..
Adding blacks, lights and darks, it evolved into this. I live by the Atlantic Ocean. The New England sea is a deep blue like no other place in the world. That came to me in this painting. And I just loved that tree! It’s the only thing that kept this painting going. To me, it is pretty and happy and it wanted to be manifested.
