Maybe cropped is better…
This painting uses a technique for breaking through your creative block. Again I used a credit card and Yupo. Those two together take control out of the equation. You get what you get. And yes, it might be a hot mess. But it is organic and free-flowing. There are areas of interesting cracking and texture that are not visible in the low res image, unfortunately.
I will be trying more of these. I noticed I was relaxed while working on them. A little closer to getting in the zone.
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing,
wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating;
there is really no such thing as bad weather,
only different kinds of good weather.
Sometimes we should express our gratitude
for the small and simple things like
the scent of the rain,
the taste of your favorite food,
or the sound of a loved one’s voice.

My head isn’t in the game coach. Yesterday was two months. That could be why. Right? But really I think I have just not recovered from my weekend away. My energy level is about 3.5.
I have been busily painting. Proof below. Sunday, nine pieces. Nine horrible, awful, not even good for a start pieces. Paint overs, all. Gotta be worth a few points. That I kept on trying. Haha. Canvas, Yupo, Paper. N-A-D-A.
Tried a couple of sketches today. Mas Feas. Found more videos by Jean Lurssen, in the vein of Jean Haines. Inspiration. Played with a credit card and watercolor on Yupo. Managed to stay loose. Had fun. I’ve had fun with all the uglies. Even if they turned out yucko.
