I've been quiet on my blog for so long, I could have easily abandoned it altogether. I may still.
I notice lots of people have quit blogging - it seems to be a reaction to the quicker
Twitter or Instragram (neither of which I do).
My heart remains with the slower paced stuff, so for now I'll do it when the mood strikes.
Yesterday, I had so much fun finding these images within abstract backgrounds
created with acrylic paint and modeling paste on paper.
Finding shapes and faces inside a colorful chaos is what I love most!
Over the past few years of painting, it's the technique I return to again and again.
Each time I do, it feels new and exciting.
I love the surprise. The NOT planning or composing.
I love making sense of partial shapes.
The kind-of-sort-of story.
The making of something from nothing.
Don't let them fool you - these are all tiny little paintings.
Each is only about 3x4 inches.
It's fun to paint small when I usually go big!
Images were brought forth using Inktense pencil and white gelly roll pen,
right in my lap as I watched The DaVinci Code for the 10,000+ time.
I sense a theme.....hidden messages, art making....
blah blah - you have to know the movie or book.
Because all the forms were found and not composed,
I don't even think they look like the same artist did them all.
Which tickles my artistic funny bone.
