Wednesday Mish Mash
Ok here's the second post of the year. I'm about to run out but am trying to get a foothold into keeping up with blogging and being optimistic about making art and the future. I do a lot of work that I never post. But also I post a lot of things that are different so sometimes I wonder if it's a mish mash. I can't seem to follow the "focus on one thing" suggestion due to the fact that I have so many varied interests but .. gallery's like bodies of work. So .. perhaps I just need to pick a theme... I'll be mulling that over. This is something that I experimented with a few months back but wasn't sure that I was finished with it. I still have a lot of trees left in me but I really love roots and rocks and rust and this painting below is a combination of those ideas although there aren't any real root feelings here .. but I did take rusted cotton and glue it with clear acrylic and then painted a variety of organic shapes on top. I worked on it for a while but then just got to the point that I wasn't sure it was finished or not. So I've had it sitting on a bookshelf where I can look at it from time to time. So .. I may add more things but I may not .. So here it is. The top photo is the whole painting which is about 11 x 14 and the bottom photo is just a detail of the lower left corner. Thanks for looking. Now I'm off to help daughter. Ps. You know now that I see this here maybe I'll just do a series of these. Where does the time go?
