mixed media on 8x8 canvas
I am still trying to come out from under this flu but it just doesn't want to leave. I am much better but this is my third week and I long to feel back to my healthier self. I have no patience for being strapped to the couch, stuck inside the house, or needing to lay down after taking a shower from fatigue.
On the bright side I am able to get back to some painting. Pthalo blue is becoming a favorite color of mine. For this piece I used only that and titanium white. No brushes, just my hands. I tend to feel much too restricted with a brush. I squeeze the paint from the tube right onto the canvas in a few places and then go at it with my hands. I keep going till it feels done. Or until I see some images appear.
I found a face on the left and I hope you see it too. I added the letter stencils for some contrast and stenciled on the words because they just felt like they fit.
It is supposed to be a nice day here in NY so I am hoping to go for a stroll by the lake across the street. Maybe being around nature will help take me out of this funk!
Hope all is well in your world!
