Well, here it is. Done.
At least i think it's done.
I sometimes have to sit with it
for a few days before i decide.
Not sure about the title...
EMERGE keeps coming to mind.
I just looked up a definition that reads:
Sea mammals must emerge periodically to breathe.
Yeah, sounds about right these days.
My apologies for the crappy photos.
Last night's painting is basically a "paint over".
(what you see here is already painted over)
I had done a painting a few years back
and hated it.
Every time i saw the painting in my studio,
i wanted to paint over it.
So i finally did,
and this one sits with me
far more comfortably than the other one did.
a few earthy, neutral colors...
and this little being was born.
I think this is the first time i've ever painted
in such neutral colors.
At least on canvas.
Maybe i just felt totally colored out
and needed to get back to basics...
back to a more pure nakedness.
