The Transformation Begins!
I lay paint down onto the canvas. My sponge is coated with whatever color is down on my palette, wet and thick like rainbow butter. I am one tiny artist standing at my easel trying to ignore the white canvas that stares back at me. If I look at it and think about it too much, I will be overwhelmed with all the ideas and possibilities that toss and turn in my mind constantly. "I am not in control!" I frantically mash, brush, squeeze paint from the sponge to the canvas. I cover it rather quickly with strokes going in all directions and in all motion. Now I'm done? Not really. Once the white is gone, now comes the "magic" or "miracle" of it all for me to see. For YOU to see!

This is how it looks when I have the under painting done. As it is drying, I step back and sometimes walk away. I begin to see images appearing within the brushstrokes, light and dark tones, etc. Now comes Stage Two . . .
Still to come: Images and videos from the studio. I will show you more of how I paint. My easel, placement of canvas, palette and so much more! I hope you enjoy the transformation as it unfolds for this new series.
