So, I got tired of the big red body tonight and covered
over it, first in black and white and then with a lot more
color. Why? Well, not sure. Could it have something to do
with my dad having open heart surgery so I wanted to detach
from a reference to a body? Maybe. Perhaps I shrunk back from
trying something new, putting a form in my paintings, and
reverted back to what was comfortable. Possibly. Or could
it have been that the big red body was causing me to try to
work around it and that was too limiting, so I covered it
over? Who knows. I wish I could tell you.
By the end of painting this night, I started using bigger
strokes, letting the colors be more of themselves rather than
smushing them with others. I like the look, so far. I spent
a good deal of the night folding the canvas on itself and
doing kick-ass dance moves on the back, moving the paint around
that way. As for the panels, well.....
I varnished 18 more, which brings that running total up
to 60. I also created about 18 more tonight, so that makes
a total of 86. Almost there! On another good note, I found
a guy in Texas on eBay selling acrylic plastic box frames
in bulk. So I bought 95 of them, which will serve as the backing
frames for the panels.
Now, if I could only find someone to show the whole thing.
Hmmmm, any takers out there? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go back , go
forward, or start over.
