Another Day of Bigger

As I head to my studio, I notice what impels me today—a day when my focus is scattered and my studio time will be short; what calls to me is another day of bigger, another day of impulsive rather than measured.

So I respond.

  1. As you know how I love majesty and orange. The grays neutrals bring out the strong colors. But, since this is a WIP who knows what remain and what will be covered!

    1. Thanks for your comments, Carol. Even though this is a WIP and will indeed change, I appreciate the feedback because that is how I go to 'art school.'

  4. It is great to see that even on a busy day when studio time is short, there is the possibility to put a new layer on. This time on a big one! Love the unfolding...

    1. Bigger actually offered access to quicker for me; I could just get in there, move my hand/arm fast, and enjoy the fun of putting a new layer on with abandon! The unfolding is such fun, isn't it?

  5. Did someone say sherbert? Yum :) Every square inch of this is a delight Dotty. It could be bookmarks or postcards... so many luscious details to see. I don't want you to cover any of it. But I can't wait to see what you are thinking ;)

  6. It COULD be bookmarks or postcards, and might already have been … except that it's on canvas! Happily, there are parts that don't sing to me, so I won't mind covering up parts of it. As to what I'm thinking? Not much, at this point. We'll see what bubbles up in my studio tomorrow.

    1. Laughing!!!

      If you asked, I wouldn't characterize myself as someone who loves bright vivid magenta, but in fact I do : )

      Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Look at those layers and textures! I am glad this is on canvas and you won't be reducing it to smaller pieces. Whatever you do with your next layer is going to make this richer and richer again! I like sherbert too, but can't wait to see what is next!

    1. Janet, thanks for your feedback on layers and textures, and your recognizing that if I were working on paper I might be chopping—I appreciate your encouragement with this current exploration.
