I'm still layering layering layering.......
working at balancing composition and contrast.
Right now it needs more contrast. I have a plan for that!
I apologize for the quality of this photo. It's not lit properly so I promise a better one tomorrow!
This piece doesn't have a name yet but there is definitely a concept at work that has remained consistent with every layer I've applied.
Like an old fashioned dance, I usually let the piece lead me,
waltz-like, from beginning to end. If it turns me this way, I follow. If it sweeps me that way, I go that way.
This piece has felt more controlled.
This has been more of a Tango, the painting and myself leading and following with space between us, creating room in the process to be connected, yet also a space to think and breathe and have the tension to push forward to an end result that is not only a reflection of the dance, but a totality of the energy it took to get there.
Stick with me, I have faith in this one!
