It has been three years this month since I began exploration into my present painting technique which I refer to as Tri/Quad/Shapes. I'm grateful to all of you who follow my work on social media and attend my open studio & gallery. It has been a productive and creative year for me. I'm breathing in this satisfaction as I pull out my sketchbooks and older painting photos; to appreciate my former interests, skill level, and personal growth opening myself to what could be. It's been a fun and interesting visit into my past and I thought I would share images and comments with you these next 6 weeks. Yes...I have a lot to share :-)
Drawing, drawing, drawing....am forever seeing, studying, and drawing. This is the basis of how I create. Some artists dream and incorporate those images into their art. Some paint images so often in their work they can access these and alter their own creative ideas. Early on I would draw and paint what I saw with personal focus on realism. You can see how my animal sketches progressed into miniature paintings.
Back then, as now, it didn't matter how many times I would get to a certain point then mess up and start over. Would study the area and practice before attempting again.In this manner I would teach myself how to paint. Eventually I would acquire a certain expertise then move onto something more challenging again. You'll see that in next week's newsletter.
So at this point I acknowledge that patience and consistent practice is necessary to progress. My piano is looking at me from across the room! Oh dear.
Thank you for your continued interest.
