I started this painting around the holidays and kind of abandoned it to concentrate on my figure painting class. I really hate to waste paint though, so I started using what's left over on my palette from class to finish this one.
This is my cousin's wife Audrey (hi Audrey! I hope you like it!) jumping off a large rock in Leakey, Tx. I started to try to paint the rock and foilage but quickly realized A) that's a whole different world of painting and I'm not sure if I could pull it off and B) it's not really something I want to paint anyway. I feel like I've recently abandoned my abstract ways to become more of a realist and this way I can combine both worlds. I also like that it's more symbolic of what it feels like to jump into something.
