Letting Loose

Since my last blog post I have been on a roller coaster of emotional extremes due to a very serious health scare by my Mum. From nearly losing her a week ago she has made a remarkable recovery enough to have left hospital. Once she was on the mend I found I could paint again and decided to let loose and have fun with wet into wet creating texture and using vivid colours depicting early morning over Uluru (Ayers Rock) in central Australia. I used a tiny tube I found hiding in the bottom of my pigments, a colour I have not used before "Bright Red" from Winsor and Newton.

    I know just what you mean .. I can't paint either when I'm worried, or stressed.. somehow the two don't go hand in hand for me..

  6. I like this so much! And am very glad your mother has recovered. It takes away from us when someone is sick and needs attention, just the stress of the situation. Hope she makes a full recovery :)

  11. Glad everything turned out well for your mother. And the painting is great. Must have been like letting the pressure off the pressure cooker. Do more of these.
