Having Fun (The Main Reason to Paint)

Though I have been painting a lot (over 35 paintings since this year began), I haven't really liked most of them. Yesterday I decided just to have fun by starting with one of my old style, impulsive, throw-paint-all-over underpaintings on an 18 x 24 piece of 300 pound cold press paper. After it dried, I did a self-portrait on top in less than an hour. I had fun and I like the result. You can see it on my other blog by clicking here. (At the June meeting of the Huntington Beach Art League, it won Best of Show.)
