IMPROV, Day 2

Had great fun creating my fifth improvisational painting.

I used as a start a painting I did in June that irritated me every time I looked at it.

activated canvas at the ready!

Rotated the canvas and started applying collage pieces.


Scribbled on some ink. Started working on another piece at the same time. Approached both pieces from a strong place of what-if, and felt improvisational, experimental, and light of heart.

Best of all, in the end I replaced that annoying landscape with art that is much more compelling to me in its detail, quirkiness, surprises, and depth.

    1. Thanks, Carol. The transformation warms my heart, I must say, especially since I was struggling with an internal tug-of-war when painting the original on a June vacation and ended up painting something that didn't speak to my heart.

  2. Wauw, this is really variation! I love very much the idea that something that irritates you can be transformed to something completely new that feels good!

    1. Thanks, Simone. Isn't it just magic when that transformation takes place? Baby step by baby step I am growing in letting myself be daring enough to let go and see what happens.

  3. Love it Dotty! I love the busy scribbly blooms, the chunky hillside. So invigorating! A++ for most transformed piece of art!
