Fresh Pick Day 2

Thirty Paintings in 30 Days  Day 2

OK,  I am playing a little catch up (or ketchup) here for the challenge.

I am learning so much just by the process of writing, posting, and linking all of these things together. And what a thrill it is to paint a series of things.  The paints are all set, your subject is decided, and all you have to do is... paint! It makes my 'nesting time' (otherwise known as procrastination) much less.

I have always said that there is something very therapeutic about painting with a pallet knife.  There is freedom as well as forgiveness. Emotion is so easily expressed.  And yes, I find it quite fun to experience those 'happy accidents' that Bob Ross talked about.

Let me know what you think about the series.

    I find the best thing about palette knife is that they are so so easy to clean! Painting, especially from life, is very therapeutic.
