The aim is to get each layer richer. My children wanted to know why I was painting toilet paper. I should have made it longer. Ha!
I am so enjoying this space of freedom from thought at the moment. It is my job to soak up my surroundings and when that new object or concept or idea stumbles across my path I can move into interpreting it my own way. I feel really good at the moment so it would probably be useful (for me) to do another self portrait to reflect my mood and emotions and see what marks come out during this phase. Anyway above is a couple of still life set-ups our lovely facilitator Alicia Mozqueira has started us on. We have around 1-2 hours to work on them and it is 1-2 hours of bliss. Alicia has a solo art opening tonight 4 August at 6 p.m. at beaver galleries 81 Denison Street, Deakin ACT. Now she makes oil paint work!
