"Release" came about as I struggled through working on this painting. I paint intuitively with no preconception ideas so sometimes it takes me awhile to find a direction that I want to go in. This painting has layers and layers of paint as I worked through this process. At one point, I got frustrated so I decided to leave it alone and work through some ideas in my sketchbook instead. While the sketchbook exercise didn't turn out as I had planned, it gave me the space to relax and not be concerned about outcome. I think this served me well because when I was done with the sketchbook, this painting came through. It felt like a release from all my frustration and I came to it from a calm and open place.
This painting is 36"H X 36" W X 1.5" D on gallery wrapped canvas with sides painted black. It was painted with acrylic paints. It is wired and ready to hang. It will be coated with a gloss varnish to protect from dust.
