Things have changed. This was last week.
And, today … Well, today brought about quite a difference in four of the paintings. As I am still learning to use this medium, I view these boards and canvases as experiments. If they turn out to BE something, awesome; if they turn out to be crap, so be it.
Let’s take a look at the changes, with which I am happy. For now. You are welcome to add your voice.
It’s not that I disliked the abstraction of last week’s landscape. Rather, I just wanted more in it, more of me.
So, I drew into the piece with a skewer and added oil color in green and purple, to better define the window.
Then, I put in a note. The note probably came from a creative exercise I played with this morning – digital speed collage.
Okay, so here’s what the board looks like now.
Garden Notes was the off-color sister piece to a triptych.
With its sister pieces, what I did today was envision looking into a window from the outside,
as the sun is going down and reflecting, projecting nature’s own image on the windows. What do you think?
Here is a close-up of this board as it was last Sunday, about this time, come to think of it.
As for this …
Well, it’s the one that has changed the most insofar as concept. I had envisioned a gardenscape. It’s become way more fun!
I am calling it “Recess.” Daughter Becca wants to call it “Playground.” That might fit, because, believe me, this canvas has been a “playground” for me.
Let’s not decide anything right now. Let’s give it all another week, eh?
