"Abstract Granny" -Sold

Granny Smith.... she's an "Abstract Granny".
Abstract... it's fun. Must be why I do it. Comes from the heart better when it's fun too!

As I started this painting, doing a close up of this apple made me want to have a bigger brush.
Interesting... when things or subjects are farther away I need a smaller brush, when I get too, too close, seems I need a larger brush. Hmmm... could be my imagination, it does get carried away a lot!!

It's fun.

Love it! I know what you mean about using a larger brush for close-ups, I feel that need too, don't know what that's all about...

Love the boldness. The large brush is a nice bold expression. You've seen CM do a demo in one large flat brush. And...there is that "fun" word again. Always good to see the joy in your work.
