Lately I've been taking my paintings
beyond my initial idea or inspiration.
I'm allowing myself to take risks and let the
painting tell me what it needs.
The fear of "ruining" a painting can prevent
some wonderful discoveries and/or surprises from happening.
8 x 8 oil
This is the original "block in".
It felt awkward to me so I softened some of the edges,
made the background less detailed
and fixed some of the drawing.
This is still a work in progress.
I added the red circles to represent the
words they are having between them.
SOME NEW THOUGHTS:
-Try NOT to have a pre-conceived notion
of what the painting will look like.
-Nothing is precious.
-Learn to live with chaos. Work through it!
