The nature of the process...

This one is an 8x8. Maybe it doesn't look like it but I am struggling with keeping it loose. My right brain is screaming at me again saying "that doesn't look like a flower!"  Does anyone know how to make the left brain be quiet? It's very interesting that every painting carries a different experience. Sometimes it's easy and it just flows and other days I struggle. I think that is just the nature of the process.

Another beautiful piece,you're one busy girl! I love it. I think if we knew how to shut that side of the brain up,we would all be better off. LOL.

When I squench my eyes it looks perfect. And isn't that the test?
Love it!

My left brain is a royal pain and often keeps me all structured when I want to be free, free, free! I think you did a great job of shushing it!

Really lovely. I have the same struggle. It helps me to work at an easel while standing and reminding myself to step back frequently to get a different perspective.
Big brushes don't let you fuss with minute details.
Love that you share your progress & you encourage me to get busy with my paints.

Oh my. This sounds so familiar. You did achieve a loose painterly feeling.
