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.
