These are small sections taken from a larger piece that I've been working on. I've been "trying on" new ways of art making (for me) and it's been a slow process. I enjoy beginners mind and new materials, new ways of expressing is challenging. I'm no longer connected to a gallery and I'm not actively looking for places to show so I have the freedom to step away from consistency of expression and just explore.
The slow motion is showing up in so many areas of my life....my banner change has been put on hold for awhile. My oil painting on the deck was cut short with a cold front that left the deck wet and damp. My promise to swim everyday was also hit by the cold front! ha I have a writing project that has been in the gathering stage and not even a new muse can hurry that process along! Now this painting project of new ways of art making is in a slow down. Part of me is so ready to make some changes and yet the habit of hand and eye is strong so I have taped up three quotes from a favorite artist Lee Krasner (also wife of Jackson Pollack) and using them as inspiration and encouragement.
I have never been able to understand the artist whose image never changes.
My own image of my work is that I no sooner settle into something that a break occurs. These breaks are always painful and depressing but despite them I see that there's a consistency that holds out, but is hard to define.
Painting...in which the inner and the outer man are inseparable, transcends technique, transcends subject and moves into the realm of the inevitable.
Slow or fast I hope all your art making is a rich and full experience!
