After finishing organizing my creative space last week, I finally had time (and room) to sit down and do some painting. I've always loved to paint and use a lot of it in my work, coupled with stamping, paper and other elements. I tend to work in a lot of layers, but get really impatient and wind up mixing and muddying paint colors in my rush. This time I worked differently. I knew I wanted to use only paint and I knew I wanted to slown down and be mindful of my work. I put down a color and let it thoroughly dry. Then I added another, and another. It was a really gratifiying experience, and though I always feel extremely vulnerable sharing my work, I really like the outcome. I have another larger canvas in the works using the same process, and though I can't wait to finish it, I will be taking my time and finishing it when it feels right. I'll be working on a series like this in hopes of showing them on the walls of Kevin's work.
