sometimes i stop working on a painting when
it seems to be done or i do not know where to go next.
i have been working on some of these almost
done paintings. here are progress shots.
both were very soft and light. seeing them
from a distance on the wall, they almost faded away.
but i loved the details as i got closer but i wanted to
be able to see more from afar. working on these reminds
me of processing a photo in a dark room. if you have ever
done this, the photo comes to life slowly in a chemical
bath. you can choose when to stoop the processing by
taking it out and neutralizing the chemicals. there is a little
magic in watching the photo images. i get the same feeling
coming back and painting slowly adding color.
i would love to hear your opinion on this
i stopped here with the painting but
when i fiddled with the photo this was the results.
do you have a preference?
posting with eva and kristen's paint party friday
i will be late in responding to your comments this week.
i just discovered that my computer lost thousands of photos
and i am sure this will take hours of work to restore them.
wish me luck
