Hello, New Painting...and Comments are Back to Normal
Let's talk about what this blog is all about...ART! This entire year has been somewhat of a struggle for me and my art. Art slumps, then frantic art activity followed by more art slumps. I've almost decided that's just how I work. Even so, it's been more pronounced this year. Yesterday I shared one of the paintings I recently finished. Today I'm sharing the second one.

This painting has a lot of layers on it and for a long time I wasn't sure where it was going. Then I just decided to start doodling on it and this is what appeared. HB says it has an African tribal look but I don't see that.
I used splops of paint, lots of stencils, and paint pens, and my favorite tool...my hands, to create this. I took both of these new paintings (this one and the one I shared in the previous post) over to the Playhouse yesterday after my knitting class. They have something going on this weekend and I didn't want empty spaces where the "sold" paintings had been.
I think I've finished just about everything that was a WIP so I better get busy and come up with some new ideas.
