New work is beginning to happen in the studio…thoughts of how this year has gone by much too fast have been on my mind as of late. There have been things to attend to other than the making of art,that have kept me out of the studio for almost a week, with the exception of a sprinkling stolen of moments; in which I just abandoned the important tasks and had to get some paint on my hands. I feel a terrible disconnect from my life, if I am out of my studio for more than a day or two. I can literally feel the cords of depression wrapping around me and tightening their hold. Today found me in the studio all afternoon and into the night. I feel like a weight has lifted, and the bonds have loosened and I am free again….at least for a while.
I love the beginnings of paintings, they are at their most possible stage and the ideas are endless and flow with ease. Here is a detail shot of one that is on the easel this month.
thinking Scarlet Gloves…of course that could change tomorrow!
This detail shows a bit of the texture I have achieved so far . I know at this point the gloves are rather orange but they are at their earliest stage at this point, and I think with layers and veils of hues on top of this orange hue they will have a really vibrant scarlet effect.
A couple of layers more….at this point it is too soft and fragile I will let it cure tonight and hit it again in the morning…
More to come later …..
Have a blessed and very Merry Christmas!
As always thank you for reading and I hope you find a sliver of inspiration in my work and words.
