6x6 oil on stretched canvas
The title seems to sum up the painting and me. Finally feeling the artistic juices starting to flow again. I was feeling pretty burned out and took a much needed break from it all. And while I haven't felt the inspiration at the easel, it's been flowing on the digital side. I am working on an animated project that is my visual of a local poet's work. Totally up to my own interpretation, and it will be shown at a screening with other pieces in the fall. It's really been fun working it all out.
So I have been painting, it's just been with pixels. Here's an earlier version of one of the scenes. It keeps evolving as I get further into it.
And even though I haven't been painting or posting, I have not been idle on the artistic front. I've been talking to an art rep and she's helping to get my work out there. And I just got word that I have won an award in a juried show I just entered! I'm not sure what that is or for which painting, but I will find out Sunday. But I have to say that it really gets me excited about painting again!
Thanks to those of you who have kept checking in here and rattling my chain via email -(that would be you, Doug) It's nice to know I'm missed and I appreciate it.
