So my wonderful painting class is over, but I'm not over!/?
I haven't finished my two canvases. I got stuck and stayed stuck for a few weeks. I'm now starting to get unstuck! Is that a word???
I'm still unfinished but getting closer. I eliminated some things that I felt were just too much clutter. Here's the latest look on Canvas 1. I haven't touched Canvas 2 since the last update. I'll get to that one when I finish this one.
After I decide what to do with the lower left corner (below), I'll put on the "icing" as Flora calls it.
It truly was a fun class. I've never painted quite this way, and it is very freeing. It's unusual not to have any idea what I'm going to paint when I start -- just to go with the flow, so to speak. It's a bit scary as well, because I had no plan -- I just waited for something to unfold.......just appear from the marks and images. Then I had too much and needed to whittle it down. That means, whittle the color palette and images if need be. For a long time I didn't like the painting and thought maybe I never would finish, but I think I like it now. We've moved through the awkward teen-ager stage.
