Something out my window Version 2
Every one in awhile I get an urge to paint out of the comfort zone and more likely than not paintings such as the one above appear. I actually really enjoy painting these as they allow me to use what ever technical abilities I have garnered over the years combined with a rampant imagination and playfulness. The paintings give me the same wonder I feel when gazing at summer clouds, always changing and open to interpretation. This piece is painted on a 12 inch square piece of masonite prepped with acrylic modelling paste and shellac.
