Sometimes I feel like breaking out and give the inner me a chance to rise to the surface. I know that the "inner me" will involve lots of feelings and emotions and be more abstract that concrete. It will also probably involve a palette knife. When I paint with a palette knife, I find myself loosening up and just going with what the canvas and paint want to say to me. Crazy as it sounds, but there are times that I think I'm only along for the ride - the holder of the brush or knife but that the canvas and some other part of me are really the artist.
I did this painting below with music playing and no idea ahead of time as to what what going to come up. The canvas is 24" x 36"

I had hoped that blogging would encourage me to paint every day and it worked. I have been painting almost every day but I have not blogged in four months. It's not that I don't enjoy blogging. I do but I enjoy painting more mainly in oils.
