Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and heal. I keep a list of names by my easel as I paint. Let me know in the comments if you would like me to add a name to the list.
I painted Mark at Baylor hospital in Dallas. He played the Viola while I painted, it was delightful!
When I “compose” paintings in my mind…there are lost edges, creative color, and bold brushstrokes. I don’t worry so much about the details, but about the overall mood. In my landscape paintings I am often successful in painting the image in my head. I struggle to do so with people. So on my second painting of Mark, I tried to painted him the way I see the finished painting in my mind. Since I worked from a photo, I snapped a photo mask free! It looks pretty rough up close, but I am delighted with the painting, it is pretty close to how I composed it in my head!
