Day 11 - Lady Liberty
In response to the posts I was reading earlier today concerning 9/11 I chose to paint the Statue of Liberty... The meaning of the statue is inherently good and I wanted to put some good energy out there and paint a little bit of hope. I painted this one very differently than any I can ever remember painting. I laid it out as usual, but by the time I got to the actual painting, I had about 1 1/2 hours until I had to go to work. The painting style is therefore very loose and I think has some pretty nice brush work going on. There are some minor things I want to tweak here and there, but all in all I am happy with the expressiveness in this one. I will post an updated picture if I decide to change anything.
