GERANIUMS - acrylic on canvas 24" x18"

Posted by Picasa
Once again I have realised that the summer months are often quite dead for me when it comes to painting. I don't enjoy the countryside so much at this time because it is so indistinct. Everything is joined together into one big mass.
Having realised what was happening I forced myself to paint. Under this painting are at least three attempts at loosening up, each one just an experiment in paint surface.
The painting itself, I realised, had in fact been incubating for many weeks somewhere deep down. It was a joy and relief to finally meet a new friend.
