Japanese Geisha Painting

Japanese Geisha Painting, 5 x 5 arcylic on textured canvas




I had this prepared, textured canvas on the shelf just waiting for something special to happen to it.  Sometimes you have to just let the artwork spring forth without much thought.  I didn't set out to paint a Geisha, nor did I use any references.  I just let the painting emerge.  I believe sometimes you need to let your hand be guided.  This Japanese geisha painting is available in my Etsy shop.

You are certainly right in just let intuition guide your hand. See the beautiful result you created!

She's beautiful Diana! I love when that happens- kind of like when a sculptor uncovers the magic out of a stone.
So enjoying all that you do! happY holidays~
