Exploration of different painting techniques is adventurous and fun. When I was a new painter, a bit scary would have also been in the mix of feelings. I enjoy many different expressions of art and painting styles, and I couldn't wait to get to the easel to paint after being inspired by Tibor Nagy's work. I am challenged with communicating so much detail that I sometimes feel I lose the painterly feel that I want to convey. Having an architectural drawing class before having any fine art drawing instruction, I tend to focus on the details or, maybe that’s just how I’m wired. This small painting of roses was fun to paint, and I look forward to further exploration of "loose" work.
