Squeeee!
Oil on canvas

I was working on this painting when my husband broke his leg (badly!).  Even before his accident, this painting was giving me fits.  I abandoned my original idea soon after starting work on it, then decided my next idea wasn’t big enough to fill this rather bigger canvas (24″ x 36″); then I tried at least half a dozen other ideas before discovering I needed to finish the painting more or less the way I’d started it — my second idea after all!

So I am done and happy with it, finally!

The artist one day falls through a hole in the brambles, and from that moment he is following the dark rapids of an underground river which may sometimes flow so near to the surface that the laughing picnic parties are heard above.

Comments on My Paintings
  • As anyone who has known me for a while can tell you, I really appreciate both the artists and the ladies here on Google Plus. Especially those who are both, as is +Marilyn Fenn . Marilyn is a wonderful artist who lives down in Austin, Texas, which is a very rich town for both artists and musicians. I met her not long after I came aboard here and have enjoyed her work ever since. She usually paints abstracts, so I thought I’d share this one, which is a little different from her usual style. Drop by Marilyn Fenn ‘s page and check out her work. Do yourself a favor and circle her.
