Oh! The glare of it all! I always have to stand back and take a picture somewhere mid-painting. Somehow it helps to distance myself from the work to see where I should be going! I suppose the glare from my lousy photography helps along those lines…
I like to look at paintings up close….so, I thought, dear viewers, you might like to see what my camera work leaves out – – I added several detail photos here. As you can see, a close up view reveals (that what might appear to be an over-aggressive brush when you view this piece as a whole) 0’s and 1’s are dissolving from view…or that’s what it’s supposed to be anyway. There are those that hypothesize we do not live in a base reality, that the universe is merely a hologram – a projection of reality. Well,
I thought I was done with my little project, but, I wasn’t. I should have learned years ago that I was either doomed to have my foot in my mouth or not speak at all. And then the Christmas spirit set in, and well….I find that the basis of this project would have not been properly fulfilled was I to leave anyone off the list. Word might get out, and I wouldn’t want to offend. And so, three more little greetings emerge.
The Christmas Card Project is drawing to a close. If you’re unfamiliar, a couple of weeks ago I got the brilliant idea of sending hand painted oil on canvas greeting cards to my friends during the holidays. I’ve completed 15 and I may try to complete three more….I might be running out of ideas for greetings that are even loosely recognizable as being Christmas greetings, but I shall press on!
I sat this piece aside for a few days, added the reflections of those eyes in the shiny black tile floor and then never photographed it! Ha!
I just dove into my next piece and didn’t go back – – – until today. Adaptation, it’s such a lovely piece once you get used to the idea of it!
