SO, quilts are on my mind, which means Left Brain is highly active.
My client requested NOT to see any images of the quilt before completion, so I will not post until it is back from the quilter and then bound. I finished the piecing the quilt and took it to Patched Works to be quilted on Friday. I am hoping my Right Brain will take over and allow me to paint freely.
I have always felt an internal conflict in who I want to be as an artist. Part of me LOVES realism and painting what I see, and the other part of me wants to bust out and go crazy, but I find that much more difficult to do. So this week, I slapped some oil paint on some canvases without paying attention to anything (Right Brain). Then I went in with my compass and pencil and divided into shapes (with my Left Brain). Hence the title of the painting, "Inner Conflict." I have a new rubber tipped tool that I used to remove the paint in the triangles and circles, leaving the neutral grey visible. I am curious to see what this looks like with white or black in the triangles/circles. Although this painting is only 6" x 6", I think it could be any size.
