Artist Thoughts: Waiting for new sight

I sometimes get stuck on a painting and put it up for a bit, then I take it out and hang it on the wall. I sometimes even frame the piece and look at it for awhile. There have been times I’ve passed a painting and thought, oh, I need a line here or oh, I should add this or that color, change this line, add extra texture here and there.

Stuck pieces

Putting the work away and out of my mind gives me a break from ‘worrying’ over it. Bringing it back out and taping it to the wall helps me see it in a new light and bring it to completion.

Two paintings have been brought back out to be seen with fresh eyes. I look forward to the artistic journey of finishing them.

This is where I work. For me it’s comfortable. Everything is at my fingertips. I have room to move, great light and a good view of work waiting to be finished. The small square area works well for me.

That’s all I’ve got for today.

Thanks for dropping by to my place on the web.
