Just can’t get anything going with my dad still here but I did work some more on this yesterday.
It went from this,
I love colour. If you were to meet me you would never guess as I’m a jeans and black t-shirt girl, but, inside I’m bursting with colour. My alter ego.
I’d like to loosen up a little. I’ve begun to realise that I’m a little tight with my work. Never really working outside the box. As a consequence I feel that everything tends to be a little predictable. I think I might start to give myself a few minutes of free painting before I start on a piece, a bit like Michael Phelps flaying his arms around on the starting block to loosen himself up before the big swim. Good grief, I’d dislocate something bad if I attempted even a fraction of that arm swing! Still I’m thinking the whole loosening up analogy is a good idea, except with my brush instead of my body.
It’s all about safety people!
Here’s what I’m talking about.
I started with this collage,
I think it’s a lot more exciting.
So …. that’s what I’m up to. What about you?
