2012 is starting out kind of interesting. A mix of work, art, home projects, cleaning, and rearranging.
On the art front, I decided to try to finish up some work that I've had in progress. I've been fighting with the painting below for about five years. Ok, it sat in the corner for most of those five years, but still. Enough already. Here's how the battle went. I painted some background...
Then the blue took over. Blech. My paintbrush made me do it, I swear.
The gesso comes in to try to help. Take that, blue background! I'll show you.
Maybe some flower petals now.
Ummm... the blue took over again. And so it sits (for maybe another five years).
I've been working on a few other things.... My first chronological journal which also happens to be transparent/translucent in the center. I started this as a class idea (which maybe I'll teach someday), but for now it's going to be my account of 2012.
