daily painting | deep sea life

More fun with older works on paper. I take the watercolor abstract, then work on top of it with acrylics (and draw with pencil, and then do some palette knife scraping, and add more pencil, and then sit down and look at it, and talk to it, and ask it what it wants). The previous watercolor is a kind of underpainting and peeks through. This one feels quite moody and I confess I had few expectations for this piece, but it developed into shapes and moving things that felt lively. As this feels like a transition time in my life — a passage, a leap into the unknown, a gestation — my daily work helps me work through emotions and helps me embrace my life and whatever the next chapter is for my art. And for me.
