Stage 1: Collage of papers.`
Stage 2: Adding some paint to the shapes.
In my many, MANY attempts at a vineyard -inspired painting for “Lushes with Brushes,” I decided to start over. Here is what I call, “Stage 2.” At least, I call it that today. It could become stage 3 or 4. Working out my painting process when I don’t really know my painting process is not so easy. But the fun of painting on the Monaco Family Vineyard with six people this Fall will be worth it.
I just started an e-course on intuitive painting with Flora Bowley, http://braveintuitiveyou.com/. Though I saw her work last year and LOVED it! I was skeptical about the idea of an “e-course.” As my computer programmer husband refers to them, MOOCs (pronounced “MOCKS”) Massive Open Online Classes are a new thing for me and I wasn’t sure I would even finish it. And I haven’t finished it, in fact, it’s only day 2, but I am SO PLEASED with how this way of thinking, mainly reassuring a way of thinking we all have in us, is helping me with my mixed media work. What fun!
Here is the underpainting on my current 24×24 inch canvas. I have been trying hard to let go and just let it flow this year with painting. It’s not usually easy, but today was a good day. 🙂
I have been trying to get this to upload on YouTube all day, and it just keeps coming out so if you want to see how I did the painting, visit this link: http://gallery.me.com/giathrondsen_w#100048
