Maybe this is Maine, and we're looking at wild blueberry fields in autumn now.
When I first began painting I would not have known how to be so messy, how to paint with such a small intention—in this case, to spread a bunch of color and texture in the space below what appears to be a horizon line. I would have struggled to paint without knowing where I'd end up, and struggled to paint with the likelihood that almost all of what I was painting would become an underlayer.
But for this five-or-six-minute romp I … well, I romped!
Painted quickly and with abandon.
