Everyone needs a little Sunshine, 2012, Jo-Ann Sanborn
Acrylic on Canvas, 16"x12"
Every now and then I return to abstracting. This painting came easily in the early morning hours as the sun rose, covering the start of a painting that was going nowhere.
Sometimes, completely changing the focus of a canvas works to get the creative juices to flow. The prior buildup of paint becomes the background for both inspiration and transformation.
We've become so afraid of the sunshine that most of us are not getting the Vitamin D we need for good health. If you don't get out for a couple of hours a week without any sunscreen, check with your doctor to be sure you're not Vitamin D deficient.
Everyone needs a little sunshine, whether you get it from a beach walk or a pill!
