ITALY -- acrylics
I have two days to finish these paintings.
The top one is new-- started yesterday... and being worked on this week.
The bottom one is giving me trouble. I don't know why-- but it isn't grabbing me as it should.
Somewhere along the way -- I lost the spark.
I know I will get it back-- but I have to set it aside.. and let it fade in the background of my desire and consciousness.
Then.. after a while... I will bring it out again... and see it with 'fresh eyes." Immediately -- I will know what to do~ !
It's always easier to solve paintings after you are dispassionate about the conclusion.
Sometimes I think -- we fall in love with what we "paint"..and not with what we "see."
