Ghostie. Oil on Canvas panel, 2007
So, I’ve done a bit of thinking over the past few weeks, and made a few forays into smaller works. I find working small difficult to be honest. So much easier to throw oneself at a larger canvas and sway with big expanses of colours and large movements. Working small requires more conscious control and careful, careful brushwork – even if it appears random. It’s an important exercise with a goal in mind however, so on I go…..
I’ve done a few small burlequeries, and decided, that those pieces need more detail and subtlety than a small canvas will allow, so they will be shelved for the moment, and instead I will concentrate on the other idea I had of a snapshot of city life. I may call the show ‘We are family’ or something like that. I welcome any and all alternative suggestions though. I’m picturing small quirky scenes like the one above. Little pieces that can happily sit on a wall or a shelf, grouped or on their own.
What do you think?
