Reckless Radishes

I got carried away with painting on my gessoboard and before I knew it, it was too late to take an image of my work outside. So here is yesterday's painting.  There is something to be said about being mindful when painting. I'm reminded of what Richard Schmid wrote about measuring in drawing "Imagine that you are a mountain climber making your way up the face of a sheer cliff, and you must think and measure before each step -or else. Does being careful like that make climbing less exciting?" Sometimes it's just fun to be carefree and reckless.

  1. Well carefree and reckless worked beautifully for you here. It's lovely. I think the payoff for getting carried away is energy in the brushwork.
