Day 5 and back to red

 Today is day five and I still love painting. Sometimes it's hard to tell how these images of my paintings look cause i can't see anyone elses monitor They look pretty red hot to me. Not sure how it really translates. I am not sure what about the red I am attracted too but I am even stitching a top that will have red on it. I'll try to post a picture of it when I'm done. I like the detail of the texture and up close i find it appealing. From a distance it seems to get lost. I find that since these paintings have no image to imitate like the realism does, I strictly go by feel and I do what my gut tells me to do and to listen to that is sometimes interesting and I find I talk to my self, haha . Yes I even answer myself and say ........who cares? I get to decide. Words even pop into my head. When I was taking a long look at this before I was completely finished i thought..... Floating above chaos. Who knows why? and they aren't so visible in this painting .. but there are red dots in a few places. I guess you can see them in the details. Maybe for some of the smaller paintings I can scan them instead of photograph them. People don't seem to have the interest in these the same way that I did with the realism. I wonder if people can see beauty even in chaos or in texture. Certainly, people with lots of character or wildly different are at the very least entertaining or they poke our attention with negative or positive reactions even if for just a minute. It's all an experiment.. I'm having fun. Thanks for stopping over and send me an email if your interested in any of my work. I appreciate those that have a word or two to say .. it is after all .. a conversation. Have a fabulous day

  1. I love that saturated red - and to me it looks like fabric.
