Its been a long time since writing, in fact its been a long time since anything, paints haven’t been touched since before Xmas, the art box thrown into the back of the cupboard out of sight out of mind due to lack of money, state of mind and family stuff.
Money has now appeared at our doorstep inspiring the reappearance of the paintbox along with the return to art classes and creativity all of which has been on hold for too long.
The upside is, I have had plenty of time to review, reflect and study, which is a good thing, inspiring ideas which previously had been constricted by ideas born of a need to sell paintings in order to survive. Working full time has relieved this burden and now ideas are flowing with the full force of a Tsunami hard to control, difficult to maintain.
And so to refresh from where we left off, this is what had been done before Xmas
And this is what has been done in the last couple of weeks
As usual, the painting takes on a life of its own and something magical happens taking my breath away. Ideas are flowing thick and fast, jumbling around in the grey matter in no particular order. One idea is to utilise the background as a landscape of buildings, on one side strong and straight on the other tangled masses of steel and rubble, the ethereal figures floating through the landscape of a split universe of personality.
As this is a diptech am thinking to title it ‘SPLIT PERSONALITY’.
