New Painting "Sticky Frog"

"Sticky Frog", acrylic and coloured pencil on wood, 9" x 10" x 1.5"
Original will be available for sale shortly.
A print will also be available shortly.

As promised, I have a new painting to show you today. "Sticky Frog" was so much fun and I am really happy with the colour scheme. I did a similar design as a lino cut years back but this version is much better I think. It's funny, as I worked on this frog, I felt almost meditative, I get that feeling when I paint, a calm and serene feeling like I am doing what I am suppose to be doing. I don't think I get that as much with any of my other mediums or styles. I wonder what that means? Perhaps I am meant to paint more. But it's funny, at the same time I always have a negative nag in my head saying "That's not right, that's not what good painting is". But I am learning to tune that little nagging bugger out more and more now and just let myself bask in the beauty of the colours I am working with and allow myself to just simply create with no agenda.

I shall go for now. It's a very rainy day and I promised myself I'd let me curl up with my book for awhile before I get down to work. Plus, I have to go clean rabbit pee! The bunnies are being very naughty this week....when I say bunnies I mean mostly Ella-Luna! Happy Creating everyone, until tomorrow.
