Hope all of my US friends had a nice Thanksgiving yesterday. It was a quiet one here with just Lou, me, and the pug. Although I miss having lots of family around the quiet does me good especially lately as I am just a sponge for the crazy energy out there in the world. I think it is that energy playing a role in shifting my art.
This piece is quickly becoming one of my favorite's. I was inspired to use colors I typically don't put together, yellow with payne's gray. I started this once again by smearing the colors around the page with my hands. Then I stepped back to look for what showed up. I saw the face over on the right and what looked like it could be a birdie on the lower left. The heart was the only thing I purposely created when I was pushing the paint around. I scribbled into the paint and later realized that it looks as though the bird has a string or something in its mouth connected to the heart. With the eyes off kilter on the face I feel like the bird is trying to balance that person.
I long to create pieces like this, pieces that tell a story, and hopefully make others "feel".
I am sharing this over at Paint Party Friday.
