I love doing this kind of painting...First there was no added color "stripes", now there are two. Tomorrow and the next days I'll let it linger where I can see it and soon it will come to me what to do with it next. There are so many possibilities! I sit a distance away and eye it with a pencil or any thin straight object I can find to hold it up and play with different lines. Oh so many choices!! It's a big one too so lots of room to play with, 78 x 54. Let the games begin! Cheers!
Time to get these two scanned! So easy to just walk them next door to Arts District Image Works!
It's always amusing to me that if I have a painting laying close to where I work, they all magically morph into each other! Seems today all is coming up roses!
One of the best parts of my job is meeting such wonderful clients who love art as much as I do! I'm so grateful to be able to share my art with others and I hope they will enjoy it for years to come. Thank you and cheers!!
Maybe it's time to create a new category on my website for these fellows. Think I'll do some more and then give them a fun name...they kind of remind me of shadow dancers. Not sure what a shadow dancer is, but I think that's what I'll call this catagory of painting. I love the complexity of them. Another fun fact about them, they create a secondary, what I'll call a "byproduct" painting with the paint I save from scrapping it off as I create the first painting. The blog below is what was created from the scrapings from this one.
I love doing these kinds of paintings. Every so often I get into a pattern of scrapping off a LOT of extra paint. Instead of tossing it, I'll collect it and use it on a new canvas. They are magical to me as it's always a surprise how they turn out.
