I really struggled with this one… I planned to do another in my series of the last days. But I was not satisfied with the huge amounts of black paint on it, so I was ready to throw it in the garbage. But then I thought: hmm let’s give it a last chance, and finally it turned out to something acceptable (consuming a lot of time though: I don’t have that every day)….
Now it is not transparant anymore, like the ones before. It is loaded with heaps of white paint and carving in it, and more crayon, etcetera… A bit busy, but anyhow: it is there and I leave it there.
It reminds me of something that Jane Davies said a while ago, that someone said to her: ‘I ruined my painting, I worked on it too long’. On which she answered: ‘No, you haven’t worked long enough on it…’
Sometimes this helps me to not give up and stumble on. Sometimes stumbling I bump in something new. So for instance: the baby-green on the bottom of the painting is what you get when you mix the green gold with titanium white.
have a nice day!
