Scatter Love

That's  what  I  naming  my  latest  painting  (for obvious  reasons).   In  the  middle  of  all  of  my  circus  art  from  last  week,  I  just  had  the  urge  to  stop,  get  out  my  paints,  pens,  and  oil  and  chalk  pastels--and  just  start  playing  around  on  a  10  x 20  canvas.
 
 
 
 
I  started  it  not  really  knowing  what  my  plan  was,  but  as  I  kept  going--it  kind  of  told  me  what  to  do--I  guess  all  you  have  to  do  is  listen  to  your  muse--and  the  next  thing  she  told  me  was  to  use  one  of  my faces  that  I  recently drew  in  my  sketchbook--
 
 
 
I  drew  her  when  were  driving  to  Disney,  and  I  Really  liked  how  she  came  out--I  knew  that  I  would  be  using  her  in  my  art  in  some  way  or  another--so  I  printed  her  image  out  on  to  a  dictionary  page--
 
 
....loved  including  her  in  my  latest  piece--
 
 
I  have  to  say  that  my  first  love  is  definitely  painting!
 
But  I'm  putting  my  art-making  on  hold  for  a  second  time,  because  we're  going  away  again--but  this  time  only  for  a  few  days--but  a  very  exciting  few  days.  We  are  headed  for  the   Springfield  Antique  and  Flea  Market  Extravaganza --this  is  a  Pinterest  link,  and  it  has  some  great  photos  of  the   market.   This  show  is  listed  as  one  of  top  ten  flea  markets  to visit  with  over  2500  vendors  all  in  one  location--about  an  hour  away  from  Columbus,  Ohio.   We've  never  been  there  before,  but  it  looks  VERY  promising,  and  I  can't  wait!!

I love every square inch of this canvas! There is so much detail and lovely bright colours. Everywhere I look there's something else to discover. I love that about your art. Your sketch is beautiful and translated wonderfully onto this gorgeous painting. So inspiring! Have a wonderful trip...it sounds like a blast.
