Painting: Escape #1

my favorite part is at the bottom

 Working on the second 36x36" canvas, boxes emerging... liking this... I think. I don't know. A quandary. I'm taking Flora Bowley's e-workshop Bloom True. Flora's works have organic nature-inspired shapes, which are flowy and beautiful. But nonetheless boxes make sense to me at that moment. I don't know what will happen with the squares. I started the first 36x36" canvas {under this one on my breakfast table-turned quasi-studio} the other day and it got quite chaotic in the best sense of the word. So I hesitated was scared to add shapes, or let any shapes evolve on that canvas. My logic with this second biggie was to start a canvas knowing - planning - determined - to add shapes and just do it. That way the other one stays in chaos and I can compare the chaotic canvas with the one where I incorporated shapes and covered a lot of the details just to let some peek through.

This class looks fascinating. I love all your bright colors. Flora was originally scheduled to teach at An Artful Journey in Feb 2012, but the event had to be cancelled. I'd love to take a class with her.

If squares are calling your name you must heed the call. Maybe it's all these index cards.... This looks fantastic. I can't wait to see where it goes next!!

You are a brave artist! Be bold as you charge into the unknown! You are doing it! Hazzah!

Looks great- reminds me of all the circuit boards floating around my house as my 16 y/o explores electronics and programming . . . . he builds circuits and these LED light cubes and then a friend of his programs the cube so that the lights flash in different patterns. Very cool, lots of small pieces, lots of dissected strings of lights . . . . I just finished a 24x18 canvas it was hard to start without a plan of some sort. . . . Fireworks would make an interesting interpretation on a large canvas?

I think the ultimate point of doing a class is to take aspects of the teachings but still integrate yourself into the mix. If squares are coming out for you, then squares are coming out.
