Green Woman – 8×10 gouache on illustration board. Marla Goodman

I keep seeing art by people who paint with a so-called “naive” style, and wishing that I liked my paintings as much as I like theirs. So I thought I’d try not to paint the way things really look. I sat down and drew something, not worrying what it would be about, or if it was going to be dumb. I just went with the flow.

I guess you can’t just turn on your inner outsider at the drop of a hat, but at least I was painting, and I do like the colors.

I also like the flowers that look like fried eggs.

I’ve just posted the original at the Goodwerks store on Etsy. If I get any interest, I may make prints or cards.
