I finally finished this painting. I usually don’t feel comfortable sharing such personal work. It is a statement about how I know some things are bad (like my fears) but instead of letting them go, I freak out when they are leaving. It’s kind of like a bad relationship that you know is better to let go of but just can’t.
Having worked with clients for years, most of which I adore; and working with employers, my art is not my own when I work for commerce; but here with my little online sketchbook I can do as I please.
I haven’t been working on the Ipad so much, but I have been sketching quite a bit, and painting a little, here is a sketch for a painting I am planning to do when I return from my trip this weekend.
This is the first draft of an admittedly strange image I created while listening to a you tube video about Francis Bacon. Francis seemed a bit dreary about his view of the universe, I hope he has changed his mind since he’s passed over, but he mentioned painting on the reverse side of the canvas and I LOVE the effect, although the color does bleed through and fade. I am planning on sealing it and going back in to make the colors more vibrant- but I love the concept, I call this “FEAR WAIT, Please Don’t Leave Me!”, as Fear merrily ignores me and steps off the canvas.
Here are some inspiring images from within the human psyche, what does it reveal to you?
