Went to work today at the studio. I continued working on this painting that for some reason I can't seem to finish. I've been working on it for months upon months so much so that it has layers upon layers, it's ridiculous! But I'm loving the texture that the adding of layers come with!
I've worked a ton on my mural and thought now would be a good time to give you an update. I'm still not quite finished because I want to have some of my students help me out with some of the bushes, just so they can say they worked on a mural!
This studio space has been through a lot with me, the lady that owns the place says that every time she comes back to my studio, it changes constantly...I have fallen in love with this small cubby of the west, it's a fantastic little escape.
So as for that painting you see on that easel, this is what it first looked like when I came in today to work.
Then I added a bit more red violet tones to the red rock formation, a few Van Gogh swirls inspired by starry night and pine trees near the bottom. I'm trying to enter this bad boy in a show and I'm struggling with knowing when it is finished or not.
Then I keep reminding myself that I must become the viewer. What I mean by that is I have to come to the point where I begin to look at it and enjoy it more as if I were the viewer. Also when my message becomes clearer and the painting speaks that message whithout me saying anything, that's when I realize I am done. It's getting so close, I'm right there at the edge and I'll be so excited to finally see this baby up on a wall!
Hope you enjoy and May God Bless You Always!
