Sometimes you just gotta
Meanwhile, today I just started applying leftover paint to a 12"x9" panel. Trying to work smaller and playing around just to see what happens. Her is how it works. One can begin with an idea in mind and work toward that idea or one can just begin. I have begun. What is on the panel now might become the base of a new painting, it might be scraped away, it might be covered it might be scribbled on. The first moves are play and take little or no thought, but after that the thinking begins. What color? What shape? Stencil?Mask(stencil's opposite?) Lines?Shapes? Balance?Repetition? Rhythm?Lots of questions to be answered but today I just put some paint on a panel and that was enough.
