36" x 36" / acrylic on canvas

Friday I spent the day with a great group of artists plein air painting (led by Laurie Wonfor Nolan) at a farm in Cambridge. In my heart, I've been working toward abstraction or semi-abstraction for some time and have been feeling a real pull in that direction (I'm speaking of my larger work here, not my daily paintings). You know that feeling when you're in a zone and you get such a rush? I remember one painter describing it as "the paint just falling off the brush". That's how I felt. I went out today and bought three more canvasses this size and just can't wait to get outside again and have a go at it. I think I'm even dreaming about it : ) It's great when you just get filled up with the JOY of painting.
