Behind the Canvas
I broke a whole lot of "rules" painting this little still life. Imagine my surprise when the "representational painting police" never showed up to arrest me!! Shall I confess my sins? I used colors straight from the tube. I painted with the sun directly on my canvas, I was playing hooky from a workshop given by a very-important-artist, I was jonesing for a hit of saturated color. I started painting when the sun was smack in the middle of the sky (usually very boring light), bribing the kids with ice cream for lunch so they wouldn't touch my precious watermelon. Am I repentant? Not in the slightest!!
Remind those you love to savor the perfect moments with this happy little still life. Pleasure is not a sin, and there are really no rules for creating beauty.
