You Never Know
Of course we never know and that is the beauty of some things, When I start to paint I never really know what I might have in the end. I am in a rather orage mood now as autumn approaches. Except I like tan or pinkish and even white pumpkins best as I bring some in the house, they are not done with their warts yet so will wait with posting.
My art lately has taken a dip, a rather careless approach, it gets muddy, and I have not been able to focus. I have probably been poisened by mosquitos, they are so horrible right now they come in swarms so you can hardly breath and I do like to be in the garden. Actually I think I have been a bit lazy, and distracted.
I was making the art room more organized and neater yesterday and could not resist starting a face, I had some background papers done with some collage on them that had been in the basket for a while, some were even cut off portions from other paintings. The part of this painting I don't like is it seems sinister to me and the innocent girl seems wrong. I am not certain the digital altering helps much.
However it will be kept in an art journal of lesser works. The reason I say, "You Never Know" as there are times when a person asks for a print or the original of things I don't especially like. Another point is I didn't do this to show, I did it to satisfy an urge to paint, however satisfaction doesn't come with disatisfaction.
There will be another day to paint. I over explain and ramble.
