This is another abstract one or two people may have seen in the early days of my blog. To those I apologise. I used it on today’s story blog because it is for me a painting that cannot be taken in at an express rate. We do indeed live in an express society.
This painting was painted in one sitting, but it was a long full day and it is not a large painting. When completed those who looked at it first said they could not understand it at all. Those who looked a second time said they began to see things in it and thoughts and pictures were created in their minds.
The family who have now owned it for some time tell me it shows them something new every time they look at it.
I wonder how many people cane see the face of the child.
This was one of two paintings and I am sure you have seen the larger of the two. It was painted using mixed media and at the time I was in a very experimental mood.
My accident and the subsequent pain seemed to kill that in me. I have been struggling to do anything of any value at all. Yesterday I came home from some time away. I read so many blogs see all that I had missed. Among those I looked at Claire's and saw somebody who was really pushing the boat out. It made me want to paint again with that sense of experiment and adventure.
