Daily Painting: Six Paintings, day 22

Daily painting

Dear reader,


Today, another layer on on of the paintings. Only adding white and a few small blobs. I am in the process of accepting my ‘style’ at this moment (blobs, blobs, blobs). It’s fun to realize that I have this grown up voice in myself that says I should make more interesting compositions. They might come out of my one day, but today it’s this. And I like it!

The strange thing is, when I make collages, the compositions are so different. I don’t know why? maybe the small format ‘asks’ for different gestures? I don’t know. All I know is that if I allow things to flow out of me, painting is more fun!

Below you’ll find the development of the last three days. I always like to see the small changes in the last phase.

    Your comments about voice and self-expression through painting feel very timely for me. We need to talk further!

    Love that you post the small changes day to day.

      We will! Indeed, I also love to see the small changes. Difficult to see though, on screen. It’s more about the subtle details right now.
