The evolution of a painting

Abstract #2 – finished!

This one took quite a different direction and involved many, many layers of glazing. And, again, I really enjoyed it. I'm working on a few more in this style now.

Room screen

I've been making this since early Jan – a little screen to hide the DVD player in our relaxation room. I'm so pleased with it!

One of the things I'm particularly pleased with was the way I approached it. Like many people these days, I have limited time to paint and do the things I want to do, but what I really came to realise at the start of this year is that I waste the time I do have. And that's something I can change!

So I've been taking a different approach this year, trying to get a bit more organised and focused on my time. Normally, when I want to do something, I either focus on it the exclusion of everything else or else I don't get it finished. This time, I had a method of balancing things – and it worked! Well, to a degree: obviously I didn't put a high priority on the housework, but nothing new there, eh? ;-)

The new approach still… new! But I'm excited about the possibilities it opens. Onwards, and upwards?

Blocking in the background

I didn’t like the flowers so I blocked in the background. Now wondering where to take it next.

Saturday painting

Painting on hardboard – an interesting experience as it’s quite slippery.
