The Idea of Trees....
"The Idea of Trees"
6 x 6
Acrylic on Acrylic paper
Finished a few of these small ones today... A few days of thought and rest does wonders for finishing up unresolved paintings. It sometimes surprises me though...the paintings that I thought had such promise, end up to be not so great... And the ones that I am not that excited about end up being better than I'd imagined....
I'm thinking that it might be because of expectations.
Paintings that I judge to have 'promise'... I unconsciously tighten up on.... And the paintings that are boring to begin with... with some bold maneuvers... can become the paintings I like best. Hmmmmmm
Had a lot more fun painting today.... Had the reds, yellows and violets going.
Think Valentines. :) I love making valentines.
