Imagine Peace

Another day at the State Fair, nice and quiet today. Plenty of time for painting. I finished the painting below today and will put it up on ebay for bidding by the end of today. The wifi connection has been sporadic today, so I don't even know if I will get this post up before I lose the connection again. I had planned to paint a new Peace painting today in remembrance of 9/11/01, but this sun spiral came out instead. I just go with the flow! I love these colors together, I may have to do a couple more! For some reason, my cropped version didn't save right so I will have to fix that later. Just trying to get this posted before I lose the connection again.

It looks wonderful Paula! I know what you mean about sometimes sitting down to paint and something else emerges! It happens to me all the time, especially if I'm not using reference materials.

I'm sure the people at the fair enjoyed seeing an artist painting!

Thanks Cynthia! I used to plan out all my paintings, but I recently decided to just go with whatever comes out and I've found that my paintings always come out better that way. Unfortunately, there weren't very many people out here yesterday, so not many comments on my painting out here! This weekend will be different I'm sure.
