Been a little busy of late, but, what does it matter as long as we feel as though we are moving forward and have a plan.
The plan is to do a lot of paintings like this one.
In fact, have started a new one,
Winged Spectre – Work in Progress
Don’t mind the piece of paper attached to the canvas, that is for my benefit. He is going to be golden like in the painting below.
The wings will be white of course with a soft gold. Just a little excited. Am hoping if I can get my skates on, I should have enough paintings in my arsenal to do an exhibition titled The Elements, – Water, Wind, Fire and Earth 2017.
And just to go off on a tangent, I was talking to one of the ladies in my Art Class who is herself a wonderful painter and her friend who in turn answered that she doesn’t have a creative bone in her body. My Art Class friend scoffed saying that was how she felt as well until at the age of sixty, she picked up a paint brush.
Her friends reply was, “but you can draw!”
The Wave 2
There was quick rebuttal, “Painting has nothing to do with drawing! Its about shapes and colours and those are learnt.”
“I cant draw for nuts!” I joined in, “it is just hand eye co ordination and practice.”
The lady looked between us as though we were slightly bonkers, (perhaps we could be) looked to the floor for a brief moment before making a decision,
“Well, I could give it a try, I have always wanted to try painting.”
Isn’t it sad how we cheat ourselves from achieving something we would like to do simply because we don’t believe ourselves good enough to try?
