Oh dear heavens.

Thank you SO much for a DD. I log on today and see I have over 850 messages and wondered what the heck happened.

Well. Now I know. Thank you for stopping by and giving my painting a chance.

And... haha, thank you for your wonderful comments and interesting points of view ;).

I can't stop grinning now.
_________________________
:D THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN.

This is a finger painting. Yes it is.

I've had this canvas for a long time and it's been painted on and reprimed several times. There are at least five other painting underneath. But only one was produced that I was proud to show.

I was greatly inspired by a fellow student in my figure drawing class who created a very expressive piece. Since then I've been wanting to release that creative energy I've felt. So I did brush in a background, but then dove right into it with my hands.

I didn't mean to produce a tree. But. It just happened.

Maybe I'll create a series of finger painting on other, similarly sized, canvases, too.

Size: 30 X 40
Time: Approx 8 hrs over the course of two days
Media: Acrylic

Overbrimming with warmth and strange movement; as if all the life in the tree is rising up for one last rush before the winter comes, I can just see that latent energy...gorgeous. :heart:

Oh! I just realised who you were. Love your illustrations! They're very inspiring to me. I've been considering getting into illustrating myself; a lot of people have suggested I approach it. I'm going to attempt to come up with a body of work over the summer. So I've been browsing the illustration sections and I've stumbled on your works many a time. Love the Cricket Revolution :)

Bold and vibrant indeed. For lack of a better set of words, I think art of any kind is excellent, including this one, if it feels like another world to me.

Thank you so much for your comment. I know what you mean.

In the future, I hope to convey a body of work that expresses that more and more.

I hope this piece warms people's hearts as it does mine when I look at it.
