Gratitude

Tink in progress...oil on canvas
I really feel painting is becoming a deeper passion for me. I am in love with paint...the colors, texture and the way it moves and changes on the canvas. Each piece starts off awkwardly, but I don't give up. I spend days coming back and tweaking and layering here and there. Then at some point, it all shifts and something magical happens. I fall in love with the work, the way the colors connect, the brushwork, the life that emerges. I keep growing as a self taught artist. I am moved and grateful for the work. Each piece I create adds another dimension to my life. Just had to share my gratitude.
