|See the streaks in the rounded part of the white mass?|
It had been an infuriating morning with computer problems and all sorts of other hang-ups so my attitude when I came to the easel was rushed and angry. Not the best mindset for art to flow.
I don't know about you, but I feel like when I look one of my own finished paintings I can tell whether or not it has been forced. So, I put it down... way down (or up, rather)... like on a shelf to dry for a good long while. I'll come back to it in a week or so, but in the meantime I did this:
prepared a new piece of metal for a companion piece to the one above. By the way, I can't wait to show you the finished painting above. I really do love it. It's a very calm piece, which is why working on it in a tense state of mind just won't do. Stay tuned! I'll keep you posted on both these pieces as they come along.
