EXPERIMENTING AGAIN!

This doesn't look like much yet...to you on this screen it must just look like white blobs and some stick things and some line stuff...YEP, you're right...it is...but I'm experimenting with or playing around with abstract that would fit MY style and it is a challenge. FUN DOINS!!  You might have to click on this to see the slight green color and the cheese cloth.

Sitting in church the other day I found my mind wandering a little (it does that sometimes), so I reverted back to what I always did when I was a kid in school...I focused my mind on drawing and lo and behold I was able to hear better!  If you're not an artist you may not understand this...but a calming thing for an artist is to focus visually and the mind can focus on several things at once!

I heard the preacher better and I came up with some compositions for my abstract that were just in the forming stages.  This one had some trees in it...sorry folks...there may be trees in my abstracts for awhile...or maybe not...that's the fun when you experiment.

Originally I had trees painted in there and strong lines and criscrosses in modeling paste to the left and top right and I sanded it nearly off...Here is why...I felt the lines of modleing paste were too strong...not where I wanted to go...and I put the trees in WAY too early.  I didn't want to do JUST that...The top and bottom have cheese cloth glued down for texture...I used Gac 100 on the surface to seal it and then glued down the bottom section of cheese cloth and THEN gesso'd the whole thing...I wanted the wood to show through at this stage...

And that is where I am today.  To keep this in line with the way I like to work I plan to stream some paper a bit...still deciding on what color to add and how much...but right now it is exciting to see where it might go!  Stay tuned!!

HAPPY CREATING!

Thanks Deb...me either...I was thinking the other day that painting is often like writing a story...even the author doesn't know what is going to happen until she writes it! FUN!

How creative - will be anxious to see it finished. I know what you mean about hearing better when you are drawing or doodling - I do it all the time at Church - helps keep me focused on what is being said. Take care and God Bless

No matter where or how you go and get there, I happen to know that it will be a wonderful culmination of loveliness. Can't wait to see!
