After what seems like a long dry spell I am finally in the mood to paint again. I have been so loving Donna Downey's journey thru paint and her inspirational muse Kelly Rae Roberts. Kelly's work really speak to me. So I ventured to A Fine Mess on Friday night to try my hand at a painting inspired by Kelly's work. I like how this turned out, the words say "their delicate wings were drawn to her." The wings made out of butterflies and the wording is my own. I have a long long way to go in learning how to paint more relaistic figures (a big departure from my abstract work) but I am really into this. Genna asked me how I would now take what I have learned and make it my own, ie. Its nice to copy and learn but how can this become a kataroo orginal. I have an idea floating about and am working on a canvas now. Hopefully, I will be able to show it to you soon.
