"Busting into Bloom"
by Judith F Lochbrunner
acrylic/mixed media on canvas
This painting features floral shapes created in light molding paste. The textures carve the parts of the flower-shapes by creating breaks in the color. Black acrylic paint squeezed from a narrow-tipped bottle forms dark, thick lines. And water-soluble pastels add bright color.
It won't be long until the gardens are full of colorful blooms like those that inspired my painting. However there is still something very special about the first blooms of the season. This is the first daffodil that bloomed in the garden just yesterday.
