Today in Pat's class we painted rocks. I kinda liked the way these rocks turned out. Not too sure about the rest of the painting, but it did feel good to paint.
I'm in a very uncomfortable phase in my painting adventure. I hate the way I'm painting now. In my mind, I can see clearly what I want my art to become -- I just don't know how to get there!
This week has been a struggle -- class on Friday, Monday and today. I'm starting to feel overwhelmed, and at the same time inspired (to do something more)! I think that my problem has become that I only paint in class, and not anytime else just for me. I remember back in the beginning when I had no classes and I spent part of every day painting. I need to get back to that. I need to figure out how to get to where I want to go -- and I truly believe that it means getting out the paints and just painting - and then paint some more!
What fun we had in Marilee's Class today! We flung paint left and right (and all over ourselves and each other) making these cool tree paintings. I love the loose look of them! I'm trying to come up with something else I can paint using this technique. Maybe a wildflower meadow?
