Not Monet, Manart

I showed a colleague a picture of the Journey painting I made, and after saying how much he liked it I offered to make him a painting of his own.

I've never made art specifically for a guy, and so I present to you my first piece of MANart.

Steely Determination - Acrylics, impasto medium and words on canvas

I'm love, love, loving this messy, free painting. It's so much fun to do and I'm so happy with the results I'm getting. Every painting is an exploration, a risk, an adventure. I now look at everything I touch and think 'could I paint with this? What kind of pattern would it make?'

Ok, back to the studio. I've got another piece on the go already.

Are you coming out to craft on Thursday night?

8 sleeps peeps. 8 sleeps. An Artful Journey awaits.
