These are some new paintings drying on my wall.
Lately, every time I see one of my paintings, I see a children's story.
I don't try to paint this way...I mean... I do. What I mean is, even when I know a color should be subdued a bit....so that another subject can take center stage in the painting,
I can't do it. It's like saying....this part isn't as special as this other part.
I know the idea behind painting this way. I know that amazing artists accomplish gorgeous pieces of art by using this technique. I just can't seem to do it, even when I set out to try.
Maybe this is just how I paint.
I'm cool with that, but some of these paintings feel like a page in a children's story.
Maybe that's the most logical next step.
I'm waiting for an idea to come to me...and I'm going to start that project.
Anyways, thank you for looking and reading!
I hope spring is filling you up with excitement and energy!
Have a good one!
