20 in 20: June Birthday Bash Giveaway, Day 19

For Day 19′s painting I wanted to paint something in a loose style; to doodle with the paint brush. The “swoops” theme I’ve explored in the past seemed to be just the ticket. I painted this in layers of color, working intuitively to choose colors as I started each new layer. The result is a somewhat busy pattern, but I think it’s interesting to look at. You can take it in as a whole, and then explore each layer by focusing on one color on another.

  1. I really like the photos that you take almost as much as the piece. It’s so pretty when you add the flowers, rocks etc.

  2. This makes me think of costumes & bunting for the circus…the -old- circus! I spent years with Ringling Bro’s as a child, in the early 70′s (my mother ran away & joined the circus, taking me with her). Wild times! The moment I saw your happy swoops I felt like I was riding an elephant in the lap of an Elephant Lady. I loved the elephants the best & spent many hours hanging out with them.

  3. love the energy in this piece. i’m kicking myself that I didn’t leave any other comments in your month of giveaways! i’ve really enjoyed the work.

  4. eep! here’s my last try.
    i love this one…seems magical.
    thank you for sharing your birthday with us & i hope you have a super fabulous day :]
