thoughts on becoming more me
there are some days when i can’t believe that i have only been painting mixed media for a little over a year. seriously, it feels like forever. already i can feel my work shifting. with every new piece i am branching out into something else. i suppose it might always feel like this. like i am always reaching and growing and spreading out into new areas where i can breathe better. i love it! my painting is becoming more messy and free and rather abstract. i am in love with patterns right now and layers upon layers of color and play. i really had a blast painting this large canvas this week. i keep staring at it. i love the movement. as my paintings change, i feel like i am becoming more me as an artist. not so cute (not that i don’t like cute), and a little more edgy.
note: the colors aren’t exactly right in the pictures. the orange is really more orange and not so red.
