Possible work in progress! ‘No Formula with big yellow candle’, oil on canvas by Marianne Potterton

I just got the urge to start painting on this canvas that I thought I had finished! I really liked it but felt that it was not ready to leave the easel, the canvas was asking for some more paint. Then I got this urge to paint a big yellow candle on it, wondering whether it would destroy it or make it I decided to be bold and do it! I am not sure if it makes it more or less but I am very happy I did it!

My thought for the day with art, is to throw caution to the wind, if you get a silly sounding or vague ideas follow them. Don’t be expecting them to come in a pretty box all labelled with an instruction manual ! You have to light the candle and hunt them down or at least follow them where ever they may take you. Good Luck!
