Two Hundred Seventy-Seven!

series 365 - 277

 

 

This image is a bit busy, but it had to be done. It was one of those days when you see that an image could be quiet and calm but everything going on around you says you screams chaos. The image feels impulsive and incomplete but there are elements I love. As you travel through this piece you experience different moments and emotions. I encourage you to explore and please let me know thoughts. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Seventy-Six!

image

 

I was lucky enough to spend my weekend at my favorite seaside home, not mine but mi madres. There was loads of tea and yummy baked goods, nighttime fires and painting! The above image is a continuation of my other work. Still playing with shadow and a sense of being overwhelmed. This piece was a bit less emotionally chaotic since I was in a rather calm place when painting. Oddly enough I think the anxiety I was experiencing during the other painting made it a stronger piece. Either way the piece taught me more and I consider it complete. There is something I completely love about the greenery in the bottom left corner…. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Seventy Four!

Tonight’s image started as something entirely different about a month ago and I used that under-painting to help develop the final image. I suppose its really just a study of shape and color. I do enjoy the piece but it feels like a piece of a complete image maybe due to its size or elongated shape. Either way Enjoy and See you next time.

Two Hundred Seventy-Two!

This was an image I finished last night. My heads been crazy recently so I decided to dive into a piece and not stop until I felt it was done. I started Friday night with a basic wash on the paper. I had been cleaning my cubicle at work and saw my notes page and thought it was actually very inspiring. It was lists and doodles which I then worked over with white out and highlighted or scratched out the remaining items on the page. I know it was never meant to be anything but it really flipped a switch in my head. It was like documentation but then the need to hide the information. On Friday night I worked on this image for ages just working off the last line I laid down. In the morning I continued going back in with Gesso to hide some items I felt did not work. By Sunday night I was done. I couldn’t see anywhere I needed to work on. I’ve already moved onto the second piece….. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Sixty-Eight!

Last night I started painting for the fun of it and because the weather seemed perfect and I had a clear head and nothing to distract me. I love nights like that. Anyway I really had nothing in mind so I started to “doodle” and this is where we ended up. I’m not surprised to see that I ended up with clusters and webs, I mean lets be honest that is my favorite thing to draw, paint, make….

Enjoy and see you next time.

The above is another in the series I worked on while attempting to find the right piece to use on my friends baby shower invitation. I suppose I have to admit that this little mouse was the result of watching the movie “The Witches” based off the Roald Dahl book, which happens to be one of my favorites. Enjoy!

Two Hundred Sixty-Two!

This is not my favorite, but I like elements of the image. It’s hard to look at this and feel accomplished. I will say that I am as usual a fan of the shapes but not the size relationship or the lack of variation in color. I need to get a better mixing pallet because the one I am currently working on is meant as a travel set, not the stationary at home set. What I find this means is that I have a very limited amount of space for mixing colors so I tend to stay within the same color range regularly.  A simple fix maybe… maybe I’ll just steal a kitchen plate! Enjoy

Two Hundred and Sixty!

Another Day, another image…

I did a few of these random shape based images because I didn’t feel like thinking anymore.  January has been a very good month for me and I have been able to meet a lot of my monthly goals but in doing this I’m exhausted. The last two nights I was not capable of thinking while painting too. I wouldn’t automatically assume one needs to think the entire time they paint because some of what you do is just a natural reaction to the image developing in front of you but when I work on images that are representational I cannot help but be overly concerned with how recognizable the items are within the image.

Enjoy.

Two Hundred Fifty-Eight!

Another free thinking image. No pressure involved in the making. I am fully aware that they are not award winner pieces but they keep the creative thoughts moving and that is half of the battle. If nothing else I am constantly learning, whether it be a technique or color relationships. Enjoy.
