Takes You To Places

48" x 48"
Acrylic on Canvas
SOLD

This was one of those paintings that just flowed for me, which is great because it's a big one.  However, I now find myself completely paralyzed on the next one.  Does that ever happen to you?  I am trying to work through it, and hope my mojo responds!

I am constantly paralyzed before starting a new piece! 'Sorry to say, I have just now realized that you have a new blog address and website. The thumbnail on my blog page hasn't changed, and I thought you were taking a well deserved break! I really enjoy following your work, so I will definitely correct this! This is a beautiful piece of work. Your paintings of the forest remind me of when I was a child. There were woods all around our home, and we were constantly exploring. Boy have times changed! For me, your paintings seduce and draw in the viewer, much like the forest did when I was young. The captivating colors add to the enchantment as well. I've said this before, but I can only imagine how beautiful these large pieces must be in person!

I love "Late Afternoon Loree Forest"...it is stunning! I was wondering, do you keep a sketch journal...it might be nice to see your planning stages and colour trials, idea developments - behind the scenes of your marvelous creations.

INspirING! 2 Thumbs UP!!

This is a beautiful painting which draws in the viewer in a kind of magical way. I have a feeling that once you begin the new piece it will begin to flow as easily as this one. You just have to start painting I guess. I bet you have started already.
One thing that helps me start something new is the idea of giving myself permission to make shitty first drafts. I got this idea from from Anne Lamott, the author of Bird By Bird, a book about creative writing. Anyway. This idea helps me a lot because I often get stuck looking for perfectionism which is of course impossible.

Big and beautiful, Jennifer! I love the flow ones and wouldn't it be a treat if the flow just kept flowing...

Jennifer, I love the barn and chickenhouse. I got a new computer after "the flood" and I've missed some good ones. Just came tearing up as I was poking through David Langevin's book and his work always makes me think of you. http://www.davidlangevin.com/index.php
Doug just got us doing minis for the mojo and it works as no risk and every now and then a little gem.
All the best
