BirdX Bird Feeling Alone

9"x12" Acrylic on Arches 140 lb paper
Having fun with experimenting and using different materials. This was painted on top of an earlier brightly colored non objective acrylic painting. I have been reading Finding Your Visual Voice by Dakota Mitchell. One of the questions she gives for consideration is about whether your vision and inspiration is from internal focus(imagination) or external focus(physical world.)  Many artists are somewhere on the continuum between. My passion is for the beauty of the earth and reverence for life so my paintings usually are on the external side of the continuum however I have dreams of crossing over at least to suggestion and mystery, depicting the great mystery.

This one has such mystery! You must be having fun exploring new techniques, Nancy. I haven't read Dakota's book, but should check it out. Thanks for the tip!
