The Evolution of Happy

I thought I would share with you how my paintings come together.  I start with random marks and getting really messy with the paint which is my favorite part.  I love starting a fresh blank canvas.  The possibilities are endless.


I start looking for imagery within all the marks and then pull them out.

 

Then I continue to refine the image, add more layers and details until I'm happy with it.  The result was a joyful, playful and happy elephant.

This painting is 24" X 24" and is available for sale in my shop here.
