6 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Today's painting was an experiment and WAY out of my comfort zone- but also fun and freeing. Just played with shapes, colors, thick paint and edges to see how little specific information I could  communicate while still capturing the spirit or essence of something. Played with extremes of soft edges on left to extremely hard edges and thick paint on right to se the impact on how that would attract the eye.

Not sure where I will go with this, but it's fun to play and learn by doing without any attachment to the outcome.

    1. Thanks Carol. appreciate your comments and conversations. I am at a point where I want to take all I have learned and take it to the next level,more from my heart and not so much my head. Doing these 30 small paintings is a perfect opportunity for me to explore and do small experiments with no attachment, not much investment. Just treat it as a game and see where it leads.

  2. This is my favorite piece on Daily Paintworks. Just gorgeous!

    1. Steve. Thank you so much. I've been experimenting with being looser and this was one of the experiments so I appreciate your encouragement.
