Today I was ready to paint. I had a short amount of time, an old canvas, and not in the middle of any projects, so I thought I would do an abstract. I wanted to keep the colors simple, basically monochrome, but with a pop of contrasting color. It was theraputic to do this painting.
Painting has been therapy for me ever since college. It is sure a lot cheaper than seeing a shrink, and I feel better after I do it. I enjoy the challenge of a detailed landscape, but sometimes I just need the freedom of painting abstractly.
