Maybe Human           Marianne Potterton   2009                        oil on canvas

You might recognise this painting from the last post. After a few scary moments as I let our  children determine the direction the painting was going, I much prefer it now to how it was. I painted with our 2 and 3 year old and learned to be freer and really enjoy the actual act of painting, not thinking about painting but just simply painting! I brought the painting together at the end with a unifying swirling green and flurries of cherry petals falling!
