I recently started doing a new kind of art, intuitive art. You don’t have a plan, you just start with a blank canvas, use all kinds of tools to get paint on the blankness and see what comes out of it. It’s a bit scary actually. I realize that I prefer to have a plan and a goal.
It also can get muddy and busy if you overdo it and I like paintings that are clear and bright. So it is a stretch for me. I decided that I would put the paintings on the site in the sidebars for each page as I do them. That gives me a motive to continue. Otherwise I would look at the paintings and not know what to do with them, not really liking them enough to hang them up.
I think I will get used to the new style pretty soon. I’ve already incorporated the watercolor wash techniques and effects that I love for the backgrounds. Anyway it is a chance to stretch and play. I’ve been on the computer too much lately.
On Monday I am going to migrate this site to replace the old one. I’ve done one page on every topic and I will continue as fast as I can. Lots to do but I only like to work on it when I’m happy otherwise it doesn’t come out right.
Oh, I’m on the strict Auto-immune diet now, cooking up a storm, and it’s going well. But I am realizing how much easier it was for me to be happy on a whole bunch of fruit and other hidden sugars. I was a happy little addict 😉 I’m turning into a fat burner now and, sooner or later, I will be happy because I’m so darned healthy.
Enjoy something new until next time,
