Back again. I wanted to show you the next piece in the textured landscape series. This is called a Chorus Line for obvious reasons, (I hope). I love the texture, which is not so easy for you to see, but I think you can get the idea. This is super heavy acrylic gesso on canvas with Interactive acrylic paint. It is not completely done, I am going to add more yellow and do a few other things to it.
The thing is that I don't know where I am going with this series yet. I like the color and the textures in both of the first two paintings, but am not entirely happy with the hard edges yet. I have ideas for working with that part and making some changes, but not on this piece. My plan is to soften the edges and make the whole feel a little less sharp in future works, if that makes sense. (Don't you think it's hard to put the visual language into words?) I guess that is one more thing which points up the difference between the left brain and right brain.
Now, I want you to tell Carlynne that I was working while she was gone. OK? Any questions?
I have a new favorite quote:
"Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work."
Peace in 2008
