Paint without process in mind

I have been painting away, and feeling that I am not getting anything done.  Which is odd, cause I am actually producing quite a lot of work....Photos to's getting late.

There is a common theme of lines going through much of the work, which is interesting me at the moment, though I have to confess that I haven't a clue why.  Really, I just am really liking horizontal lines, so I'm painting lots of them.  Trying to figure out what this is all about, but for now, I'm having fun running with it.

As an aside, the Golden Acrylic's website is an absolute gold mine (jejeje) of information about paint and how to manipulate it. Honestly, more there than you could possibly imagine.  Like this paint guide and this colour mixing guide.  Honestly, just the beginnings.  Yeah, there is a certain amount of marketing to it, but the information provided is amazing.

Anyway, for now I seem to be painting for the sake of painting, which feels weird a bit after the run last year with the immigration series which had a feeling/comment/something to say about I seem to be messing with the medium while waiting for the message.  That said, there are some cool bits coming out of it!

Love that line!
Go with the flow – see where it takes you. Consider it an adventure originating in your subconscious.
