last night's playtime...
acrylic on paper...
before i added the black, i flipped over the paper...
just because. :-)
(notice the blue markings on the top right corner above...)
they are now at the bottom left here...(above)
added a bit of white, and some circles here & there...
at this point, i saw a man, with a bow,
surrounded by animals and spirits.
Some of you may see a person with a surfboard,
or a woman holding leaves...
but i saw a man with a bow.
That's what i decided it would be called.
Just because. ;-)
I don't particularly like the color red
and i use it very rarely.
Some artists use it brilliantly,
but i'm not one of them.I still find it so aggressive.
Some artists use red in a way
that feels more passionate than angry.
But I still struggle to find that balance
between red and other colors,
so it doesn't feel like the red
is taking over the whole damn room,
let alone the painting. :-)
Yesterday, I was angry about a few things,
so it felt right when i used it -
maybe the anger is slowly finding its way
out of my heart and onto the page.
notice the limited color red in these pieces?
Maybe it means i'm not often angry.
Or that i lack passion in my life. ;-)
oh, i added a few curls to the blue boy painting!
I also made his eyes more intense.
I like it now. Much more.
And a little video for you, my friends...
How can one not love such a setting
filled with so many instruments,
and an angelic voice,
all at the same time?!
I saw Loreena in concert a few years ago.
Best concert EVER.
Maybe because there was more blue on the stage than red.
