pencil, guiding words:
Creating the dreams written as real
Seeing the glory of hands unshackled
Colors making simple vivid marks
Let me see the inside of this soul's voice
Keep me in the game
Throwing my dice and moving my charm
I've been making changes in my paint handling and favored compositions. For now, I'm okay and will lay this one aside. It seems for me to make a change, I need to swing to an extreme so it takes me awhile before I find a good balance. This 'new way' to paint my poems and writing is requiring me to re- look at foreground and background...shapes organized and disorganized with a minimum of texture and 'stuff'. I want to stay focused on story....story floating as a whole and I'm in the beginning stages of finding better ways to pull this together in satisfying ways. I must keep reminding myself that I no longer have show dates or gallery calls so I need not rush this very personal process. I'll start a new piece and what I learn on that one I will bring back to this one and there begins my crossover dance! It's going to be an interesting spring and summer!
I'm a big fan of PBS and have found (I'm always late to these discoveries)recently an interesting show New Scandinavian Cooking which takes in cooking, travel and very young forward thinking chefs...here, it is on Saturday afternoons around 1:30pm. Pablo is home from Las Vegas and I have eaten my fill of eggplant, olives and sundried tomatoes so now I will try plainer fish and chicken dishes. Sundays I have on my list "Masterpiece Mysteries" tonight being a Miss Marple episode. Oh My, I'm sounding like my mother?!
I've ordered from Netflix two movies about artists "Seraphine" and "Goya's Ghost"....So often I'm disappointed in "artist movies" but I will give these a try. Anyone seen these two?
I'm not sure of the day or time but Bravo is starting a new series very much like Project Runway only with artists? I will watch it and report!
