Daffodil painting

Daffodils # 1,  acrylic on gessobord panel,  (8" x 10"),  2014
There are moments in my life when my patience just runs out and I need to vent. That's when a palette knife comes in handy instead of a regular paint brush. There's just something about painting with a palette knife that is so satisfying and gratifying. Mix the paint and smear it on the canvas all in one movement and things begin to happen.
That's kind of what happened with this painting of daffodils. There was originally another painting underneath it, but it just didn't work and I didn't want to make another painting that was just ok. So I covered it up with something better and now I feel better.
