And in the midst of a moving truck and cats and dogs running and playing, I continue experimenting with limitation and looseness, this time with wood panel (gesso'd in black), acrylic paints, one brush and the usual rubber wedge, paper towel and squeegee. Back to Ireland for this inspiration image, and for attempting to both capture and abstract something irreplaceable in the world - the rocky cliffs and untamed surf of the Wild Atlantic Way.
As you, dear reader, approach this new week and the end of January, know that YOU are irreplaceable. And also this: Art is not created by consensus. It is created by crazy people being the most like themselves. - Brian Rutenberg. Now go out there and be your wild, irreplaceable self! I'll be rooting for you. xo
