I say this piece came out of frustration because I had not painted in a little over a month. I decided it was to starrt again. I began an intuitive session, it was not flowing properly. I blended everything in and restarted. Second time, no luck, the flow was just not there. I did that about 2 more times, it was just not happening. I was forcing too much. I began thinking to myself, well that's it, you screwed up, you stopped creating for a month and a half and this is what happens. Out of frustration I took the palette knife and just scratched up the canvas in one motion; almost stabbing it. I looked at what I had just done and realized it was actually beautiful. I went with it and finished the piece. Funny how things happen.
