The Journey Sold

























I thought this was finished a few days ago but every time I looked at
it, it seemed too tidy and neat, no excitement factor. I think I need
my heart rate to accelerate while painting so it feels like I'm taking
a risk and any moment, I could ruin the good parts. Loads of paint later . . .
finally beginning to understand the beauty of not defining the boundaries.

This is stunning, Lorraine! There is so much to see in this simple composition. I love the undefined boundaries!

Very cool looking. Love the layers, the looseness and the broken boundaries!

I just found your blog and I'm so glad I did. The energy and atmosphere in your painting is delicious! I love seeing multiple versions of the same subject. It really demonstrates how the same thing can be interpreted in myriad ways.
Tchao-wow!
