I am beginning a new painting today! This painting is of a spot on Wellsley Island, where all of my recent paintings have been, in the Thousand Islands N.Y… This is a view from the swimming hole looking up at the cottages… My word, I love that place.
When I paint, I am there again. So, I paint.
I used to paint very technically and then I would get frustrated and never finish. Drawing out angles and dimensions beyond what I can see is too complicated for my brain… I am the one who when given those math problems about trains traveling along two paths at different speeds and at what point do they meet, I think, Well obviously the answer = orange kitties pancake syrup. Yeah, That is how my brain works.
So now I paint free… I just start and paint… I question myself along the way and start with a mess… but then I finish and I am happy.
It’s Monday… A New Wonderful Messy Beginning…
AND my kid just dumped a whole bag of dog food onto the living room floor. Neat.
