The first day of the New Year I always feel reborn into a new time to think and create and change. We’ve all been through some very busy times with family and friends and just keeping up with each day as it presents itself. This past week I’ve taken some time to work on a new painting about the new year and the endless possibilities of it all! Enjoy
The end of summer and painting dog stories….There are many parts and pieces to the rescued dog stories, but we are working away to publish a 2nd book. Meanwhile, I found this half finished piece in my art files and decided to finish it. Ideas are great and fun and inspirational too…but actually resolving the painting is always a challenge! I’m working on large 31X41″ print paper which is very tough and takes a lot of abuse…good thing!
Sometimes, it’s possible to learn more when I am feeling lost. Then, I have to really look around and try to find my way back, or figure out what to do next. I was lost once when I was a child. It was very scary, but exciting too. Otherwise, I would not remember this. Painting is the same way. Destruction of some of my paper pieces has led me to think about the road forward, the possible reuse of the wonderful paper…..the marks on the paper…transformed by an accident. It’s interesting.
When the road is suddenly unfamiliar, I look up and think…hey, where am I?…..good question!
