Innocent


I am working on some paintings to show galleries and enter in a couple of competitions. I can't post them because they need to be fresh paintings and not previously published. I am having a really hard time as I think I am pressuring myself for their quality too much. I pulled this painting out of an older post in this blog. It has alot of texture and the colors are bright. Enjoy! oil on pintura board 6x8 c.2007

Just calm down and paint.

Stop worrying about the result. The results will come. Just paint.

Oh I do enjoy your paintings Nancy. And you are too good for the painting not to flow.

Thank you Janice. My mind plays tricks on coordinating my brush strokes with what my mind says to do! LOL

Thanks Marian, People don't realize how hard it is to be loose!

Nancy, I saw this one a few days back and meant to comment. I hope you don't mind being compared to masters or famous artists but something about her face reminds me of some of Renoir's faces, except this has colors and brushstrokes I personally prefer to his busier way. Again, your color sense is just fantastic. I know it's a sin, but I'm envious!
