As I'm continuing with the painting experiment to Find My Joy, I'm taxed with the assignment to employ contrast. "Choose two contrasting things that you love in painting and use them together." 


Today I chose bold line and brushy paint. I have used bold line frequently, but not brushy paint interacting with the line. 

The hand is very much in this work as I smudged paint and redrew lines. A worthy experiment. 


Also, new words for the work :

"I paint representationally but not of appearances. I paint representational pictures of emotional experiences."
