The other afternoon I messed about with these two paintings again. I don't know if you'll notice any difference, but the foreground, a sort of blue grey, is a different color and there are differences elsewhere too. This one I feel I've maybe done enough on.
I worked on this one too, changing colors and shapes. You see, I never really know what I'm doing. I just paint and try to work it out on the canvas. Did you ever watch one of those TV painters? They show how to paint step by step. When I was a kid, I watched John Nagy demonstrate how to paint, but now other's do a similar thing. I could never paint the way they show or even do "Plein air" painting. I'm too disorganized.
I am struggling with these two pages of the board book. I just am not satisfied. It feels messy and ugly to me. But I show you anyway. Process.
Today I turned the heat up in the studio and will soon go in. I am going to make a SMALL wall hanging as the robe is intimidating me somehow. I have been looking at Sarah's blog with her gorgeous artwork. Course mine is nothing and will be nothing like hers but somehow her latest piece, which is about death, inspires me to do a few smaller things before continuing on my robe, and also Andrea's masks. Sarah has some face on her felted pieces and also what looks to be ceramic faces. Explore and experiment.
