Cotton Candy Dreams

Acrylic on canvas 14×11″

Tekakwitha is awfully good at coming up with titles. I really like this one. 

I think the technique is progressing nicely — I’m pretty happy with this one. I have another, sort of a sister painting to this one, but it’s perched on my easel because it just needs something. I have a vague idea of what, but I’m not ready to commit yet.

Painting — the way I paint at least — is always an example of MLK’s saying (and I know I’m going to misquote him here) “you don’t have to see the whole staircase to take the first step.” Or something like that.

I almost always get to a point in a painting where I think this is not going well, I’ve ruined it. Then I launch a desperate rescue operation. Which usually works out. Some pieces end up in the pile of shame, but thankfully only a very few. Almost always I can pull it off, and I’m happy with the final result. Like I planned it that way all along. Like with this one. 😏

If you like this painting, please share — it really helps!
