Investigative Work

Picked up a canvas that was last touched seven weeks ago.

Now I'm doing what I might call random unfocused investigative work, aligning myself as fully as possible with a spirit of nonattachment to any particular or preconceived outcome.

I am mucking about.

And seeing quite a bit of muck as a result, if the truth be known, though this small patch of canvas emerged as a happy little found composition.

  1. Sorry I don't see any "muck"! But I only see a small detail. Love the pinks and oranges... and those black shapes I am sure will show there full colors.

    1. Carol, I elected for a detail shot rather than a muck shot for this post! But I'm thinking I will show more muck in future posts. In any case, this particular detail of the painting may be long gone by my next post!

      Thanks for your comments. Yours is usually the one that greets me first thing each day : )

    3. We're early risers (and early to bed, also), up at 430a every day and ready to roll!

  2. Mucking about! Love that! Makes me want to wear wellies in the studio...

    1. Wellies or bare feet—one or the other! Still mucking about today but discovering/uncovering little bits that feel like clues, suggestions as to where I might go next.

  3. This one reminds me of puzzle pieces scattered on a table...

    1. Love that you see puzzle pieces scattered on a table here, Joje! Awesome!

      (This painting is a puzzle for sure!)

  4. Very edgy urban street. Looks like someone may have even stepped on it. LOL. Love the red scribbles, Makes me think of lipstick on a mirror. :) Or crayon, down low on the wall, Hehe.

    1. Oh my gosh, I just love hearing all the different interpretations a painting can call to mind—thank you for sharing your impressions, Sheila! Love the very edgy urban street notion. As soon as I read that, my red scribbles became graffiti to me … till a microsecond later when they became lipstick on a mirror or a child's crayon wall scribble!
