On Wed. mornings I do a timed exercise with a group of painters. We were introduced to the idea by a Calgary painter named Doug Swinton http://www.dougswinton.com/ I love the spontaneity in his paintings. The point is to use a large brush and lots of paint on largish canvas with a 2 hour time limit. The more I do it, the happier it makes me. There is a lot of freedom working with large brushes and the large pools of paint. This one is the 6th one. I did this at home over the holiday and it seemed finished at this point (1hr20min)so I signed it. Love that sunshine streaming through the window at -30 deg.
