This is my new motto.
I'm a big procrastinator but I like to say I'm a big thinker.
I think about things want to make, the different directions I want my art to go in,
the different things I'd like to try.
But I always get held up with the subject matter.
What should I paint? A little girl ? But I already did that.
What about a little boy? I already did that too.
So the other day I got to thinking...I look at other artist's work all the time and most of them paint pretty much the same things over and over again.
So did all the Masters.
I mean how many times did Van Gogh paint himself anyway?
So with this in mind I decided to just shut up and paint. Since I took on this new attitude I have created three, well, two and a half new paintings in the past four days.
I say 2 1/2 because the one I am currently working on is still in the works as you will see below.
Now all of this creativeness comes with a price and the price is....
A messy, messy studio. I have paper all over the floor, my palette in caked with dried paint and in desperate need of a soak but I can't yet because I need to remember the flesh tones I used for this painting. I thought I'd share a few studio pictures so all of you folks who have said how "Neat" my home is can see the real deal.
The "Brown Eyed Girls" above are in need of some funky Vintage Sister style hair. I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with this one but I will know it when I find it.
Have a wonderful week!
