|'Shattered' Mixed media on cradled panel 16" x 16"|
This painting started life as something entirely different until I reached the stage where I had to admit to myself that I didn’t know how to create what I really wanted, at this stage I was forced to change horses in mid stream and this is the result.
I have only been painting for 2 –3 years and have never had any instruction of any kind, so I have to learn everything by trial and error. I closely study paintings that I like, trying to figure out how this or that effect was achieved and I also read everything about painting that I can lay my hands on. Gradually I am gathering the knowledge to create the image that I have in my mind but sometimes I run into a brick wall and have to admit defeat.
