Getting back to painting–Jan 3, 2011
The first week of 2011! Art Time! During the recent wonderful holiday season I did not put brush to paper at all. But I was thinking about the work a lot. I felt that I needed to turn my piece upsidedown, with the heavier, darker part going on the bottom instead of on top as I had originally planned. I also convinced myself that I wanted to do a lot of drips.
Well, here are the results of working on the piece yesterday and today–no drips, one iceberg and a sunset in the background!..not exactly how I had originally imagined the piece. Maybe my next painting will have lots of drips!
This piece feels almost finished. I did put plastic in it, but less than what I have been doing. I still plan to incorporate plastic in my future work–a visual reminder of how much this material surrounds us. This is what I did on January 2nd.
