Strong. Like. Bull.

I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but my husband, Michael, and I are committee members for Jackie's Hope for a Cure and we both fight for Lung Cancer victims. 

We have a main event coming up that we are all very excited about...dun ta da DA!!!!

And for this event I am submitting some paintings for auction and 100% of the proceeds will go towards lung cancer research and awareness.

Here is one of my submittals...
Very abstract and modern but also depicting strength and awe.
Also very simple for any artist.

I started out with an old canvas to paint over...
Turned it on its side and started applying colors with a pallet knife.  I used brown, yellow, white, and blue.
Just scrape the paint down the canvas, much like icing a cake!
I then traced out the form of the bull with the point of the knife right into the wet paint.
And then filled in the form with globs of blue paint.  I then applied some black paint to create shadows on the bull.  All done!

Here are a few close ups...
