I recently have been visiting the blog of Mindy Lacefield, aka Timssally, and I am fascinated by the way she paints. (She's on YouTube). Clearly, her art and her journey are unique to her and I am intrigued by how freely she paints....that's the only way I can describe her art because as I watch her in the process on her video....I feel like she just puts paint to paper and runs with it. Maybe she has a plan....but I can't tell. The end result is magical.
Every artist has their own style. Certainly, I could do a calm landscape or a folk art house....but I'm trying to determine what defines me and my art. If I saw a painting of Mindy's hanging in a gallery ....I would immediately be able to tell it was hers. Do you know what I mean? The answer could be to just paint what makes you happy.
I decided to just go with the flow today and see if I could find that kindergarten artist in my soul and above was my result. All I can say is that it was a lot of fun. And I want to try and hold on to some of the "play" I found in my art today. Check out Mindy's art....see if you can find your groove! Below is my kindergarten self....
