Thanks for all the enthusiasm and kind words about the paintings on last post! I'm almost finished with most of them...of course, I'll let you know!
I've been working on this painting for my kids at the same time as the others. It's for their shared bathroom. Because it's for my kids, I felt a real freedom and no hesitation about whatever random idea came to my mind (and hands). I realize that I need to have this feeling when working on pieces for sale. I feel that way until it gets to a certain point and then I start to analyze a little.
At times, I felt like I was working on a collaboration with my friend Jennifer Mercede, as we have done before. This piece just feels closer to some of hers to me.
All about little marks, and color combinations, and little hidden messages and meanings to my children.
I'm done with it (for the time being anyway), and am hanging it today! Another favorite part of painting. It's 13x34" and it's going to hang right above the towel bar.
While I'm sharing, thought I'd show you this one too. It seemed to come out of nowhere, different than my usual, and I like that. There are so many, many layers under the scallops. It's called Sunset. To me it's the sunset you see in the sky when at the beach.
Off to put on a finishing coat. I'll be listing the paintings I've been sharing here on the blog soon. Again, thanks for all the encouragement ;). xo
