Dear readers,

 

Another one in the same series (20/20 cm). I wrote yesterday about the power of working in series, and today I see again why. If i put the last three painting next to each other, I can see clearly which one is more powerful, and I start to see which elements make it stronger or weaken it. Also new elements start entering the paintings. So there is a development going on (in stead of repeating myself on and on). At least: that’s what I hope!

 

bye!

    Thanks!

    I’m interested in the title of this book. Is it about art? Or about creative work of any kind?
    with love,
    Simone

    Simone, again I value your discussion about working in a series. I posted my recent series yesterday (Jane Davies class). I agree—much fun and much learning comes from working in a series. I also think the energy from a series is often greater than and more vibrant than the sum of the pieces in the series. All fascinating.

    Your discussion also linked in my mind to what I’m reading currently, a book in which the author strongly recommends setting up a three-part “filing” system or portfolio of one’s work, consisting of (a) Like, (b) Don’t Like, and (c) To Be Continued; comparing the like and don’t like can be very informative.

    The fine lines in your painting are very appealing in contrast to other elements in your composition, and I like the interplay of positive and negative space as well as the use of dark and light values.
