That's Not What I Meant

The title describes the method. Painting begins with an effort to express my mood by using color and texture. As the paint dries, I see that what I've done does not aptly express my intentions. So I take another stab at it, add more color, more texture, and again that's not what I meant. I try again, and again. The painting builds until it finally speaks for itself, no longer needing my input.

This little ditty, is an acrylic painting on an Ampersand 5" x 7" basswood panel cradled with a 7/8" profile.

The auction on eBay will run for one week.
