Creating Joy Part 2

Adding thick paint and texture to start making this painting pop!

Slowly but surely, the layers of paint are starting to take additional form. Today’s goal was to add texture. I caked the paint on and used the back of a pallet knife to create the texture pattern. It was so much to slap the paint around and use a little force on the canvas. I got paint on my clothes and realized that in the last three years, I have had more food on my clothes than anything else. It felt great to get paint on my pants! The messy food is a symbol of the loving meals I prepare for my beautiful children. The color on my pants is a symbol of the love I have for getting my hands into something creative.
