Swan Celebration

"Swan Celebration"

I was originally going to paint the swan in delicate pastel shades of color and leave lots of
white on the swan. But something else seemed to control my hands and brush and hey, why fight it. Accidental drips were incorporated into the image as were specks of paint flicked on. It was a big image so I had to scan it in in pieces. Then with some photoshop paint tools I filled in the blanks in the background.

An image celebrating the energy and passion of creativity. No peaceful swan floating for me.
