First, let me gush about Julie Ford Oliver's blog. I've followed it for a very long time so when she made her video on "Fracturing" for ArtByte I was there to purchase it on day 1. Since I have a show coming up the end of April at Kaewyn Gallery, Bothell, WA, my time should be spent finishing up a few more paintings. Instead, I spent a wonderful day playing with Julie's method painting. It was fun and refreshing and I'm ready to go back and work on my paintings. I'm sure a little of this will creep into my own way of painting since I use a palette knife quite a bit and that's ok.
So, step out of your comfort zone, try something new, take what makes you happy and discard the rest. Don't worry about copying, it is going to come out "you". Those are my words for today! What are your thoughts on the subject? I know you have some, come on and share them.
