My first painting of 2012! Just like the line in 40 Year Old Virgin, "is it true—if you don't use it, you loose it?" it's not true. You can day dream all day about painting but you have to actually do it. Every time I work on a painting I get a little bit of fear that all of my creativity will just up an vanish. And then every time I finish a painting I realize that I need to chill out!

Emerald Ribbon

 This was fun painting to make.  I started painting it using layers and layers of contrasting colors.  The end result was a painting with a lot of depth and bright, bright color!
