"Suddenly"



My latest painting did not 'suddenly' appear. This one took some doing as they say. It has a lot of layers and a lot texture as well. I worked on this on and off over the last two weeks or more.

The name 'Suddenly" came more as a feeling within the last few hours of working with this piece. I just noticed my wording there and was about to correct the phrase, but realized that with most paintings it seems that I need to work with it to let it become whatever it needs to become.

This canvas actually started out as a landscape. It had mountains in the distance and mostly a blue sky, but as I worked with it, I began to get a sense of water instead of land.
