New Moon


After my last post I headed back to the studio and made a grand dash to the finish for "New Moon".  Sometimes painting is not thoughtful and slow but just letting the paint and brush move across the canvas.  I decided to let go and let it be.  I am truly enjoying this new series of Moon Titled paintings.  This may sound strange but I am a great fan of austerity where my subject is painted with no distractions from backgrounds.  The "Being There as One" makes it interesting for me.  Now that you know I have a weird streak please enjoy the new "Moon" series as they come off the canvas.  Painting this little Paint filly made for, A Painting Day".

I love it, Ruth. I didn't know that painting without a background had a name (austerity) but I do like my paintings like that too.

I really like the pale background and the white of the horse. It has a very majestic feeling to it.
