I often sit down to paint and have no idea what I am "feeling" or "seeing". It has truly been the case of late. I started this painting and immediately it became a bouquet of flowers.
I actually liked it at this point. It reminded me of an impressionistic bouquet of flowers. Very soft and subtle.
But then, I added and added and I hated it.
So in an attempt to rescue it, I started painting "out" things. A heart?
Nah...wasn't feeling the heart thing. I added in more green thinking it reminded me of a field of wild flowers now.
But, then it got very chaotic again. I wasn't seeing enough balance and it was too much all the same size flower for me. So there it sat ~ until...
it became an owl. Of course. She was wiser than me and knew I had to come to her slowly!
So maybe you have a painting, project, or something in your life you are trying to form. Keep on trying and eventually it will come to you! I think I am going to try and re-create the first bouquet and leave it alone!
