No Pretty Paintings Allowed
Sometimes when a painting hits a snag that stops you in your tracks, you just have to do something drastic. This was one of those paintings. This is the last one of the series of six that I had been working on a month or so ago.
It looked “pretty,” even though I knew it would need more sessions before it would become a real painting.
So this past weekend, I looked at it again, thinking I’d work on it some more. I decided it was going to have to go in a whole new direction, because I don’t want pretty. Anything but!
Well, no one can say it’s pretty now. But this big swath of white paint will cause me to look at it in a whole new way. Now maybe I can help it become a real painting.
