I wonder if I should give up fine art painting for interior decoration.....just kidding. In the last few weeks I have thrown myself into painting my house and love it. Priming those walls are like covering a canvas with gesso. And laying on those coats of color almost as exciting as seeing something come to life on canvas. I even love trim work (what the hell is wrong with me?!...) The house has indeed become a work of art to me. Replacing knobs and outlet plates.....love it. People talk about how much work having a home is, but I love every minute of it.
But I have been painting in the studio and meeting with new artist friends here in the great arts community of the 'Burg. as it is called by locals.
I have been working on this one for some time and it has been a real challenge technically. At first I wasn't sure where it would fit in to the New Mythology story, but as I go an identity is unfolding. Who is this and what will be her great purpose?......
