Work in Progress: really large canvas pt. 2

June 4, 2013

Congratulations to the winner of the Art Postcard Jayna – who wants me to send it to Judit. Love that act of kindness!
and to Jaclyn, the winner of the QA Gifts & Gadget case. It must be a “J” kind of morning!

Remember this? I wrote about it, oh, forever ago.

It’s been taking up space in my studio, or the hallway, or wherever I move it to while I’m trying to work. Ages and ages. OK I just checked – almost exactly one year. I didn’t know what was next so I ignored it.

And then I was wasting time actively seeking inspiration on Pinterest and came across this on New York Carver.

photo 1-17I love it when that happens! Wasting time isn’t alway wasting time – sometimes it is necessary to allow time for daydreaming, for connections to bubble up to the surface, for that thing called inspiration to happen.

    That “wasting time” thing is called “noodling” in this household and is very important to all of us creative types! I think up the best things just before I fall asleep at night and when I rest in the afternoon. I can rest now that my kids are grown and flown; it’s the best noodling time for me.
    I love the circles. I love all circles really but especially the ones that look technical or old-fashioned.

    Fun! I have alway been a big fan of Frank Stella and his use of circles/arcs in his paintings. I think it is because of the energy the arc imparts, or I am just a circle kind of gal. Love where you are going with this. Have fun!
