For a long time I have been toying with the idea of using different colors. Rather than my comfort zone pallet, browns, reds, oranges, and the occasional glimpse of blue. The odd thing is that for 17 years these colors are rarely visible in my designs, yet when I am painting, I find myself drawn to the browns. I wanted to go crazy and use the other side of the spectrum. Perhaps this is a new beginning, but most of all this is turning out to be so much fun. With these color, even the thought process has changed for me.
This one is called "The Inner Child". What ever the age, let the inner child take you for a ride.
When I finished the first piece in this series, of course I posted it on FB, to see what peoples reaction will be. And than I got the most unexpected one - my husband saw it in the morning on FB, woke me up with a very urgent question, "Honey! why did you start posting other peoples art on your fan page?". I asked him to go and make us some coffee - it was hanging in the kitchen. He was surprised, and said that he liked the new colors very much. Approved !!! by my number one fan.
I planed and painted this painting, specifically for this purpose, to cut it up and see what happens. I am glad to report that each individual piece has a very unique composition and it's own life. All together it worked out to be 24 pieces 5" x 11".
From the beginning I new that it was going to be cut and to my surprise it was a very hard thing to do. It took me 3 hours of looking at it, doubting my decision, sweaty palms and shacking hands. Finally I got the courage and made the first cut. The rest it history... no going back. (no alcohol was involved in this procedure) :)
It was a good decision.
I believe in the Magic of Creation... this is my world, where ideas are born and their journeys tell the final story. The good, the bad, the happy and sad, just plain old crazy.
