carefree


 Some of my best work happens to be loose.  I did this one day on a carefree summer day for a childhood friend's Mother.  Her Mother happened to have fallen and gone to the hospital so she thought this would provide a nice home-coming welcome for her.
Upon feeling that I have arrived at a finished interpretation, the artwork is matted and sent.  I always feel much more relaxed at this point but I know that I work with a certain anxiety to please.  Is it me, or does it seem that when we have a playful attitude that our work is all the more satisfying.  Wishing each of you a carefree moment this weekend.

I think that carefree quality is what gives your work movement and life - it never feels static. Hope you have a great weekend too.

Well said, Patricia! When we are loose and relaxed, things don't seem forced. Of course, your work always seems loose and relaxed to me! You just have an amazing gift!!!

Have a carefree weekend!

Something about thinking it doesn't count produces the best work. I know I love my work more when I'm not "trying."
