A Painting from The Homeless Finch Studios: "Wind and Rain Bear Fruit"

Last month, I showed you all several progress images of a painting that I was working on in my blog post, Sometimes Running Naked Helps Bare The Truth Which Paves The Way to Honesty.  I completed the painting a few weeks ago and my sister hasn't come over to steal it out of my studio.  So, I am going to show the final results to you today.  Plus, I'm going to hang out over at Paint Party Friday and wanted a little something to share as well.  I have been busy with a project that I will be revealing tomorrow morning as well. 

"Wind and Rain Bear Fruit" by Lesley Litrento
(5' x 3')

 I am so glad that I have finally gotten back into my painting.  I really missed putting brush to canvas.  But sometimes, breaks are good too.  The time away allowed me to clear away the negative energy that followed me from my BFA program.  Now, I am left with positive energy, the skills I required and a willingness to finally listen to my voice as it speaks to me on the canvas.  So far, it's a start and I like what it is telling me.  I hope you do too.  Remember to follow your own voice.  It already knows what you should be doing...

Beautiful! Even though the colors are vibrant there is such a soothing feel to your painting. Love the whispy streams flowing through the background. You do lovely, lovely work.

Nicely done. You are well on your way finding your own style. I admire anybody that can just take a brush to canvas and let it guide you.
