The sky was brilliantly dark today and the greens and purples and pinks of spring were glowing bright. Meanwhile, I finished another spread. The energy to create comes and goes, but not with tidal regularity. Rather, it spurts and stutters and falters and then dwindles for long periods of time, my fallow periods., and then comes rushing back in. The last few days I’ve been lucky to have the energy and a whispering muse.
I started out simply finger painting with a variety of colors on a very wet page. For some reason I take great pleasure in feeling the paint sliding between my fingertips and the paper. It’s a no pressure way to play, and anything can happen.
I decided to practice painting some spheres, and then just played with floating shapes. Eraser stamp pattern thrown in at the end.
Here is the final result:
Media used: gesso, craft acrylic paints, Derwent Inktense pencils, wax paper, timber brown stamp pad.
