There is something so relaxing, about putting paint to canvas. There are times that I don’t even know where a certain painting will take me. Sometimes, I have no idea how it will end up…only that the process of it all is something that I long to do.
When I started these canvases months ago…they were headed in a direction I wasn’t too pleased about. So I let them sit a while. About six months. Being re-energized after some really creative workshops last month, I decided to bring out the paint once again…to re-visit these canvases, to see where else they could take me. This time, I liked where the process lead me…with the help of some texturing, and marking pens and pencils, these two pieces were what emerged…and I LOVE them both!
“Her Poetic Soul” and
“Strength” (sold) are now available for purchase in my Etsy shop. I’ll be taking most of December off, to unwind, to create, to spend quality time with my loved one. It’s a much needed rest after a very busy year. I’ve learned a lot this year, and as you can see from the art I share here…there has been a little stretching of the artistic wings too…exploring where I want to go with my art. I get this way at every year end…looking back at what I’ve accomplished, and seeing what direction I want to take in the future. I guess I am still mulling it over…and will probably take the month of December to explore that a bit further.
I’ll keep you posted though…as you are along for the ride too…as the artistic journey continues….
