Gillian inspired my painting today. In little snippets of time over the course of the morning, I taped off a new patch on Core Values, gessoed it for a clean start, painted several collage papers in different values of raw umber, and raided my box of existing collage scraps to cull additional pieces for possible use. This afternoon, after some snips, tears, arranging, rearranging, and gluing, I created a new patch.
I moved it from beginning to end in short order. Woo hoo!
It is simpler in design and detail than at least half of its fellow patches, though probably twice as complex as I'd envisioned—an engaging first time out of the gate with my intention to use just a few lovely colors and simple strong shapes.
Next: absorb today's experience, and experiment again.
