For several days I have tried to shoot some images of what I've been up to. I really needed natural light in order to capture just a bit of the depth of these layers and this has been a very overcast week. Finally this afternoon the sun peeked out rather timidly from behind the clouds. I grabbed the camera and found that this old structure behind our home makes a very fun gallery wall!
Remember the two paintings from my last post? You probably won't recognize them now...
One of Degas' bathers turned up in this one. Do you see it?
Think I went a little overboard? No worries...I can always simplify a bit with a little more paint :-)
What an adventure. At some point in the process we will start to develop our personal imagery in these layers of colors and marks. I am fascinated to learn how Flora will lead us through this process and I'm excited (and a little nervous) to see how my paintings will evolve. Oh! I just found a dancer and a raven's head in this one...
I love the way the reflection in this window makes it look like a black and white painting in the middle of all that riotous color!
These paintings look so happy against the weathered wood. I sort-of wish I could leave them there for a while! Hmmm...if I run out of canvases I guess I could prime these walls and have at it! Can you imagine this whole building covered with swirls, lines, and, eventually images? That would be a beautiful site in these woods. Better yet, maybe it should be a collaborative effort. Now that would be beautiful indeed!
Thanks for stopping by today! I'm linking up today with Paint Party Friday. Pop over there to find a list of incredible artists also sharing their work today. You can join us by linking to your own artsy endeavors!
Have a restful and happy weekend!
