I took a break between portraits to make an autumn inspired painting. I was wanting to get my fingers in some paint. Yes, this is fingerpainted. No brushes, but the occasional scrape with a palette knife. I so enjoy getting paint all over my hands, and my clothes, and the room, and the easel, and even, every once in a while, on a canvas. LOL! This was inspired by my walks in the woods, this fall. I was even briefly lost in Wolf Run Park with Toby the Wonder Dog. He was no help at all, though. I knew that if I kept walking, I would eventually end up somewhere, but I was toying with the idea of panicking at various times during the walk. This painting has some of that dark dread, but it also has some of that wonderful light whereby I knew that the Lord was there. I love Autumn! So beautiful!
This is acrylics on a 16×20 canvas.
