This picture above is another example of ‘trusting the process’. I put down several layers of color last week while listening to a Pablo Picasso documentary. I played with acrylic paint, water, brushes and even a palette knife. The painting was going nowhere. So I put it in my ‘to be continued’ cart. I picked it up this morning and locked it into my easel. I gazed at it for a few minutes, then noticed a faint image in the colors. It was a face. I grabbed black and started painting. A couple hours later I was finished. Hope this helps you find your process. Peace!
