Nine Lives




I know that the phrase "forced spontaneity" sounds rather like an oxymoron (don't you love that word?!) but I did this painting without any preliminary sketch, just started with the paintbrush and tried to keep it as simple as possible - for me and painting that can be a challenge.  When I work in collage it is the exact opposite process, usually reducing an image or images to the bare minimum.

I started another spontaneous fashion themed piece but I can already tell I'm becoming less and less spontaneous as the painting progresses.  Another good resolution - try to remain loose and spontaneous!
