Month of Hearts Day 16

This is one of my paintings from the Wild Heart Painting retreat. I didn't write about it in my previous posts but my friend Carrie asked me to so here you go.

This painting was done fairly early in the retreat. It was fun to play around with the paint. The background was done by painting colors over other colors and carving squiggles into the wet paint with the back of a paintbrush.

It just sort of emerged into this childlike painting and the fun part for me is that this is exactly how I used to draw when I was little. I remember making my dogs and cats like that. This was just a light-hearted, fun painting.
