I really wasn’t sure about a Blog. I was pretty sure I needed to practically be a Nobel Laureate to write a blog…wittily, engagingly and with proper …um…um…you know…searching, searching . . . ah!!! punctuation! And then there is the spelling thing. Not good at it. Never was. So I will definitely be leaning on my ability to paint.
So here is my first entry. It’s called Quince in a Box. I have been working on it for a while now. I am at the fun part – everything that isn’t cardboard.
I started this blog yesterday but waited to finish until today. So as I look at this very quickly photographed (with my phone of course) painting, I see glare and confusion. I am also noticing a distinct leaning to the left of both the front two Quince . . . Quinces? the one on the left looks like it is about to tip and fall right off. Mmmmm . . . I think I like it. the other one looks like it is about to take off into space. Don’t like that. I will have to change it.
All in all I like this looking at my unfinished work like this. It definitely gives one a little distance. Some perspective, which we all need sometimes.
