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.

 
Here is January 3rd…with more emphasis on what is under the iceberg!
 
 
Hope everyone has an art-filled New Year!
