So says a character in a novel after the birth of her first baby.
So say I about painting!
Visited a Rockport Art Association exhibit recently. My eyes skipped over traditional landscapes, landing instead on abstract work. Really? My eyes?!
Returned home to paint from feeling, with no external reference in view.
So unbelievably hard for me, the learning curve so steep. No way to create from feeling but get in there and create from feeling.
Fiddled with paper and pastels first. Tapped into feeling. Sketched. Skidded from feeling to thinking. Stopped.
Still in pause mode …
