Day 9 of 100

Today when I painted, I played. Had fun. Got kinda goofy. I can only show you a portion of the piece because it is my submission for ThursdaySweetTreat. You can go there on Thursday (http://thursdaysweettreat.blogspot.com/) when Natasha posts the entries and see the whole thing, which I know you will do because you are just dying to see the whole painting, aren't you????

All I'll say about today's piece is that me, who runs like the wind AWAY from any attempt to paint anything representational, because my efforts to depict "real life" stuff stinks . . . well, I painted a picture of "something" . . . actually looked "it" up on the internet and tried to reproduce the image.

I didn't fuss at my attempts. I actually enjoyed myself.

This project is definitely changing my relationship with my art. In a very good way.

well I anxiously await the full view...because I like what I see so far!

Maureen, you definitely are an artist -- and I love that you are just letting it flow.

Enjoy today!

Maureen - I LOVE what I see - only a sneak peek, huh? OK. You've definitely got my curiosity going. I'll look for it on Thursday!

Hugs -

I like the detail. Very abstract. Oh such mystery and anticipation.

I am still working on just playing.

Working on playing. That sounds oxymoronic.

Maybe I'm trying to hard.

Hopefully the "reveal" on Thursday will make you laugh . . that was MY response to my picture . .

Rowena: "working on playing . . ."---aren't we funny creatures? My oft-used word is "struggle" and oh, I am mightily tired of struggling. I don't know how to just STOP. Laughing helps. That's pretty much what I was doing as I painted this picture.
