Where I live we have been set free, kinda.
What does that mean for me, not much. What wasn’t open is still not open, or at the very least open a bit more. There is still nowhere to go and just chill, people watch and remain anonymous.
Anyway, back to the subject — new painting project!
If you are one of the very few who read this far or even make it here you will know that I “officially” finished my last painting project. Done, finished — nothing I do will make it any better.
I started a new project. Actually I started it two weeks ago.
The plan for my new painting project is this:
… recklessly applying paint with no regard for any artistic rules … Yes, that might be an impossibility … I would need to be a monkey or an elephant to do that.The Artist — me!
So far so good. I have kept my dirty little paws away from brushes and applied paint with reckless abandon — sans brushes!
At this point I’m slowly adding layers of paint to create random texture and shape. I’m hoping I can exploit these elements and create an interesting image.
Hopefully I don’t fall into the trap of contriving some abomination— kinda like what happened with my last project — sigh!
It appears I am taking the same approach I always take and yet expect different results. I believe that is a definition of insanity. Regardless, I’m doing it anyway.
Abomination here I come!
Maybe I’ll work on this painting for the rest of my life.
In the meantime here are some closeups.
As usual, for those reading via email: below is the header from this post.
Have a great week of perceived freedom from World Lockdown.
