“Smoke and Water”, Acrylic, Karen Gillis Taylor, 12″ x 16″, $800.00, in Osmosis Gallery, Niwot, CO as of 7/24/2014.

As promised a few posts ago, it’s time to show you the painting that came out of this painting. (Perhaps it does pay to paint very busy compositions!)

Look closely at the top painting (click for larger views) and you will see the area that gave me the idea to explore and then paint the new one. Did it take you long to find it?

With art, one thing so often leads to another. I’m glad I am back to painting full-time now, as the ideas are flowing and I want to get momentum going! There is one little issue…
