New Year, New Painting - +Terrill Welch tried something new and got this gem!  #art #painting #new  
Late December West Coast Sunrise resting 6 x 6 inch oil on gessobord

There is some much pressure on artists to be consistent in their body of work. Galleries like it as it is easy to show. Patrons like it because it is familiar with other work by the artist that they love. But artists, at least this artist, do not necessarily like it. There is something awkward and unfamiliar with limiting palette and stylistic expression to such a narrow range that the work is immediately recognized as coming from the same creative process. Somehow the painting process often unfolds in quite a different manner.

Today, I did what I refer to as “doing a Henri Matisse” which is the process of digging as deeply as possible in a variety of directions to find what best way to interpret my subject, my desire and my intention.

This is my favourite of three paintings that I did today that are now "resting" in my Creative Potager post "Doing a Henri Matisse in three paintings" at:
http://creativepotager.wordpress.com/2013/01/02/doing-a-henri-matisse-in-three-new-paintings

The change in palette and foundation from canvas to gessobord  gives me the freedom to devour the winter sky with my brush. It is not about getting it right but rather about getting it live.
