A Painting a Day #75 - Greenery
Updated: Aug 30, 2020
Greenery – 4"X4" mixed media on masonite.
I prepared the masonite using Delta Ceramcoat and golden crackle paste - and I used saran wrap pressed into it and removed, to create the background texture.
I tried to focus on the light and shadow instead of each individual leaf in this painting. I think I was successful and it was way more satisfying than defining each leaf.
I started painting one 4"X4" miniature daily on May 1st 2015. After a near fatal drowning experience in 2013, I realized just how precious life is and I wondered why I was waiting to do what I loved most. I just wasn't finding the time.
It took a while to commit to it, but a year later, I decided I just had to make the time and I enrolled in some fine art acrylic painting classes. Under my teacher, Sharon Moore-Foster, I gained confidence and found my soul's voice through my paintings.
Now I am fully committed to expressing myself through my fine art by creating one miniature painting to mark each passing day – to leave my mark in this world.
