Jan 2017 30in30, Day 20

Today I think, what the heck, I'll knowingly throw some acrylic glazing medium on this other 4x5" piece and let it have its way.

And have its way it does.

from this
to this (ouch)

But then I have my way.

    1. Thanks, Janet. My grand gift in this current challenge has been a heart more open to exploration and inquiry, discovering—along with everyone else—where I end up with various paintings. Happy for the colors and energy in this one.

  3. What an appropriate title for this piece. I can feel the energy and movement. Hard to think of this as such a small piece. That magenta sings!

    1. Thanks, Carol. I appreciate your notice of the title. I finished painting, looked at it, and thought of spring flowers … which are hiding inside seeds at the moment. SO magical, like the art that 'hides' inside us and then blossoms when we give it light and water and warmth. Glad you can feel the energy and movement.
