You See God in it...
“If in thirst you drink water from a cup, you see God in it. Those who are not in love with God will see only their own faces in it.” ― Rumi
This is the second steps of a commissioned painting. I did up four sketches for the piece and he chose the three horses drinking. You can see how I began the piece with a mid dark blue and then began sketching the horses in place. The base is in acrylic and then the painting is in oil.
Every painting I do has a 'joy' to it. To enjoy this moment of painting opens up beautiful thoughts inside of me. I love this part of the painting... it is an under layering before the actual oils. It is the 'experience' of the work as it builds.
