Sometimes things don't end up as you intended. They alter and morph along the way. This piece started as a loose interpretation of Billie Holiday and about halfway through it was clear that the subject of my painting had decided to go another direction entirely. I set aside my picture of Billie Holiday and let the portrait be my guide...and I ended up with a young lad. Glad he pushed himself to the front of the canvas!

I'm glad he pushed himself to the front, too! Great color palette, nice crop, intriguing expression - it's got it all!ReplyDelete
Me, too! I'm learning to let go with my painting. I love when it guides me...sometimes it bosses me around. :-) And thanks!!Delete
