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,
It seems I do a great job of photographing glare. It’s distracting. I try….
And, you thought I’d finally given up painting? Well, it has been a while since I’ve done anything worth sharing. This is what is on the easel at the moment, a nice piece featuring a glass of spilled wine – – spillage without breaking the glass! It’s a miracle! A glass saved…although, saved or not, I can’t help but wonder if that bow had anything to do with it. It’s a work in progress – needing much more paint! Oil on cheap canvas,
36 ” square.
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!
