April's show at OPAL is themed "Spring". I had some tulip fabric that I wanted to include in a painting and an image of a cat on a rug in my brain. So, I married the two and ended up with giant hot mess of a canvas that left me wondering if it was a failed painting awaiting gesso. I decided to press on and surrender my original conceptions for the piece allowing for the painting to give me direction. I realized in this painting how much my emotions can influence what I'm painting and even corrupt it. I don't know if the result is very "Springy", but there are tulips in it! Below are three photos depicting the progress. What do you think?
