My studio is a good size with plenty of windows and nice light
but when you are working on these jumbo canvases...it gets crowded
and I'm a sloppy painter, so I need to somehow protect other painted canvases from possibly getting splattered on.
so I spent the day moving paintings around the house
I have a few spots that are 4 or 5 canvases deep...big ones...lol
I told Mike the other day..there was too much art in this house!
I'm feeling like its every where
and the next day I'm telling him that I'm in need of a big blank canvas to slosh paint around on...lol...life with an artist.
this doodle painting above is almost done.
I find when painting these smaller canvases, my arms get real tight
and when I paint big canvases, like this one below, my body is more comfortable.
This year I set out to make some changes with my art
1. learn to work with a different color palette
2. force myself to learn shading
3. not to paint a swirl branched tree
4. alter my usual looking flowers
Out of the four goals so far, I've accomplished one, and the photo below is a tree that I like enough and its branches are not swirls.
I did make myself try a new color palate, but it bored me. I did learn things from that challenge though.
Shading continues to be a down fall for me, but I don't really care.
My flowers have changed some.
its all about evolving
one last thing...I can't seem to get to the blogs I follow any more
is anyone else having this problem
and is there a button I'm not seeing?
Have a great weekend
Thanks for listening
