I am a really impatient and often very rule bound person. I think it's my love of messing around with "finger" painting and collage that saves me from being a real artistic "stiff" This has been a new experience for me - painting without safety lines! I just realized - especially when painting slightly more realistically (and this is as realistic as I get) that the lines make the painting stiff - after all how many animals or people have black lines around them? LOL. Sometimes outlines are good - but I'm finding it freeing to work without them. I will try to post updates as I go along. Helps me to keep a history of my work as well. Thanks so much for visiting - if you like please leave a comment. I love to hear from you. Have a blessed and art filled day!
