There are some times when one just can't settle down to paint -- this weekend was one of those times where it seemed all I wanted to do was splash paint around and see what happened. These grapes were one of those 'happenings.'
I enjoyed the process of wetting parts of the paper, splattering paint from the tip of my brush, spraying a bit, blending a bit, and then 'finding' and losing edges and parts to leave the work somewhat abstracted.
We had one heck of a storm last night -- tornado warnings, lightning and thunder that kept me up most of the night, and pounding rain that I fear has knocked down most of our fruit tree blossoms. It's dark now and will be when I leave for work, so I'll have to keep my fingers crossed some blooms have remained to bear fruit this summer.
It'll be another intense week, another aspect of the Southern Symposium, and then a small break for the Easter Holiday. We've gone from cold and storms to temps predicted by the weekend to be in the high 70s! Yep, fickle weather indeed.
Have a great week!
