New canvas, new work! I get most of my canvas stretched to my own specs and preferences. It’s important to me that the canvas and stretchers I work on are of best quality, hard wearing and really thick and strong. This means that my several layering, texturing and mixed media applications last permanently without weakening the surface or warping the wood. I am bursting with energy and visual imagery for these new works ahead!
Today’s location of inspiration. Taken on my iPhone, here a few clips of what excites me today. They will most likely become part of some of my next pieces. The atmosphere was stark and warm and the only sounds were of nature itself.
This is a work in progress.. I never know where a painting will go when I begin and sometimes I wonder more for the finished ones.. It’s hard to put a ‘stop point’ on a work at times. I think it’s more organic than that.. It’s interesting how the dialogue changes through creating a visual narrative and how the dialogue actually ends when the painting is somewhat finished. To me I think the mystery of art lays somewhere inbetween.
This is a short take of one of my paintings titles ‘Carcass II’, for a video piece I am putting together of my current work.
