... another effort to keep brush strokes big
This is my painting for today that includes two figs from my garden. 
I am trying something new.  My brushwork was getting too tight so I am trying to use bigger brushes and  go for more abstract shapes.  Putting a brushstroke down once and resisting overblending is my goal. 

I have been in a slump lately, having a hard time coming up with new subject matter. Studying other blogs and my art magazines has been inspiring.  Doing a painting a day to warm up without the pressure of a finished painting helps me, too.
