“Bird in Forest” is included in the collection “50 Oil Paintings Inspired by Nature“. It is a free-painting project, meaning that Natalie didn’t look at a reference or plan this art, but simply painted whatever came to mind while listening to music. This is an exercise that is good therapy for anyone to try. It frees creativity for any type of profession, but especially of course for professional artists, as the reliance on project goals is removed and the artist must paint like a child does- from the heart and imagination. Doing this brings out emotion, passion, and unexpected outcomes that are slightly skewed, not quite real, and dream-like in quality.
Tip Natalie to fund art supplies to reach her lifetime goal of 1,000 finished oil paintings, a series of live events, and surprising opportunities!
