What is And What Should Never Be

What is And What Should Never Be

This is another acrylic finger painting from 1989 when I was experimenting with using my fingers to paint with and mixing the paint directly on the canvas with my fingers.

This is a scene from rural Eastern KY that I painted. I used this finger technique for a little over a year in 1988-1989. I really enjoyed the outcome of the texture and color.

thanks for the comments its real fun to do and i felt at the time the emotion of the feeling was directly flowed from the body to work the paint.

WoW, its like a different planet scape, especially the mid and background. It draws you in.

I like this painting. In my last painting I tried using my fingers. It was fun & I like how it turned out.
