Slap Dash and Wicked Fun


I painted this yesterday online for fun. Boy, I loved it. It's rough, unpolished, exhuberant and colorful. I want to paint more often like this. Took about an hour and 45 minutes and I had great company all the while. Want to watch? Go here.
I'll get back to the more careful paintings soon, and I will likely fiddle with this one (polish it) just a bit, but I hope to arrange to do more fun fast paintings this year.

I wouldn't polish this too much more--it's wonderful and fresh. Keep it up!

This is very nice Susan! I like the light, the color and the brushstrokes... it looks like you had a lot of fun doing it. Great! This could be a winning painting for a competition... don't you think?

Hi Susan,

Happy New Year. This looks anything but slap dash. I like its painterly quality.
