Acrylic Painting, Carol Barber, Rise from the Swamp
I really enjoyed doing this painting. I love layering paint. And discovering the narrative after I begin the painting instead of having a plan beforehand. For me, I'm not sure if the end result is as satisfying as the process.
This piece started with a color exercise that I tried to scrape off the canvas. I like making something when the options are somewhat limited. It is kind of like cooking, I think I do my best when there are only three ingredients in the house and I have to improvise. Maybe I should get other artist's cast off canvases and make my masterpieces.
