"Altered Perception" Abstract Portrait Painting




I finally made it to the other side of my move and let me tell you that was one crazy rat race!!!! We are getting settled and I have set up part of my new studio space.  I have not painted anything but walls for over a month.  I was afraid that I would be a bit rusty.  Last night I actually felt a little intimidated but as soon as I put the paint to the paper that wonderful rush came flooding back.  I painted this piece over an old abstract done on 11 X 15 watercolor paper.  It is done mostly by finger painting and palette knife.  I used a small brush for a few minor details but kept its use to a minimum.  It feels wonderful to be painting again! 

Wishing A Very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
