Loose as a Goose?
Maybe not quite as loose and
free as I'd like, but I'm trying to loosen up and paint in a more painterly style which is REALLY hard. Using a big brush, making bold brush strokes is challenging when you've been stuck in the realistic world of painting for so long. There is one thing I liked, a lot, about doing a self portrait...you can leave out the lines and wrinkles, the droopy eyelids...reverse the clock...just don't look in the mirror!! In this case it's okay, cuz I did this for a competitio
n in Alaska. It's highly unlikely this piece and I will ever be in the same place at the same time.
