The Dawn Of Dusk

18 x 24 Chroma Interactive Acrylics on heavy linen canvas paper.  I wanted to end 2010 with an experiment in painting.  So in a very spontaneous and perhaps spastic manner, I started applying paint every which way and in every possible direction.  I used a big brush and worked very quickly wet into wet, alla prima, with no pre-planning or defined objective.  At one point I was using a brush in both hands just have a lot of fun.  The result after 30 minutes of this is "The Dawn Of Dusk." YES, I was quite sober as the only beverage I drink is diet A&W root beer.  It was a very liberating experience and I must say the most fun I've had in a painting session.
