Enlightened Journey

I finally have a new original to share! Today I went back into this painting, which stayed in it's raw underpainting stage for a few weeks. I just loved what happened in that first layer of expressive washes of paint. Today I came in with a little white to emphasize certain elements, then called it Done before I went too far. I know this piece could have evolved in a number of directions, but when it clicks it clicks - it doesn't matter if takes two hours in or two weeks.

I have just listed this 16" x 20" painting in my Etsy store.

Great work Jess! I love it! I love the falling paint, the drips in it. Reminds me of letting go of all the negative energy that one may have. The top part reminds me of the positive energy that some send out. You keep that and let the rest just drip away.

I like the white and the lovely colours showing or glowing through.
