A Burst of Thunder

A Burst of Thunder

I started this painting in Rebelle, like I do all my paintings any more.

I used watercolors and inks and lots of drips.

Then, I brought it into Painter and finished it with acrylic brushes using the new dynamic speckle bristle brushes.

I’m not entirely happy with this piece.  I have been very frustrated with my abstracts lately.  That must mean I’m about to change how I paint.  I don’t know what’s coming, but I’m excited.

I started painting in September 2012.  To be honest, I wasn’t very good.  I have worked hard at my art and painting, and I know I have improved.  I just want to get really good now!

Many artists find a style and stick with it.  I don’t want to do that.  I want to keep what is mine and unique, but I want to grow as an artist.

I got a video from an artist by the name of John Salminen.  He is drop-dead fantastic.  Check him out John Salminen.

To me, his abstracts look like realistic paintings and his realistic work looks like abstracts.  He does cityscapes and is fantastic at them.  I hope his video will be as inspiring as his paintings are.
