acrylic on gessobord
Yesterday I spent the entire day working on a painting that I consider a failure at the moment. Ughh! So I decided to look for something that would change my mood. This is a small painting of our dog Moe who has since gone on. He was such a good boy! I started painting it last night and finished this morning. I enjoyed the abstract elements in the light and in the shadow.
I have been listening to Brian Rutenberg on YouTube. He is a wonderful abstract painter who has short videos on his thoughts about what it means to be an artist. He references all kinds of art that has influenced his work.
