The progress pics…

My lady underwent some changes. I lost my knife in the move, so used all purpose shears to cut her out. I’m not thrilled, but this is leaning more toward an experiment than anything, so it’s cool.

The background canvas was one of five that I had mass painted prior to moving. I haven’t fulfilled my intentions with them, so I grabbed one to use for this. Eventually I’ll go back to those, but I’ll save that explanation for another post.

So, here they are.  If you have thoughts, share ’em.  Thanks for looking!

Nearly a month later…

I did not realize how much time had passed since my last post! I knew it was getting up there… I’ve been working on that large pink thing painting and haven’t decided if I’m actually making progress or just slapping on coats of paint. My opinion waffles, so today I only worked on it for a bit and decided to prime a different canvas. Just getting it off my easel for a little while offers a break.

Here are 3 photos, each at different stages. The last photo being the current stage, of course.

Taking a break/refresher…

Either works. I just got back from the dentist and while preparing to go back to working on the Fiction Project, I realized that I don’t have ANYTHING in my head right now. Nada. Anything worthwhile to use, anyway.

I have had a large canvas on my easel for a few-several months. I started the painting in January and worked on it for a few weeks, then stopped. So it just sits there. I didn’t take it off the easel when I rearranged my “studio”, so when I moved it, I hurt my back because of the weight and awkwardness…maybe I’m angry with it. Anyway, I thought posting photos of what progress I did make on it would be motivational for me.

This is what it started out as:

Then it turned into this:

I don’t know if you noticed, but they’re two different paintings. I started out in one direction, then decided to Thelma & Louise that idea, and covered it up with this. This is not unusual…I think well over 3/4 of all my paintings have at least 1 completely different painting under them. I have lots of canvases that have several paintings on them. I don’t know why I do it…I just do.

This is what it looks like right now:

Slight progress…enough progress that I’m able to remember where I was heading and I want to keep that direction.

Maybe I’ll write about it! Probably not. *sigh* Off to attempt to make something worthwhile!
