me today with small painting – oil on canvas board
I had an unsettling call last night that put me into a tail spin. It’s not long until the show, and wheels must be put into motion to advertise, and invite.
I’m still far too busy making the work, but it has been an interesting 24 hours, with 2 visits from angels and inspiration of sorts re a show title.
I have a work that I was very excited about, and proud of, it was working, it was looking great, it was looking horrible, I was losing it, then last night, I grabbed the palette knife and without really knowing what I was doing, a pair of angel wings appeared on the canvas – and you know what. It worked. Tiny bit more to do to it today, but I am so very happy.
It was getting close to 1am, and it was definately time to go to bed, but there was not much paint left on the palette, so I grabbed a little canvas board and thought I’d have a play. Another angel popped up. I wasn’t expecting him either. I like him.
Today I need a show title – it must be today. Last night I was so stressed trying to think of one – I have been struggling with it since I agreed to do the show, and this morning it popped into my head. Life Lines. I hope it ties my people and stories together without being too soft, and references my penchant for scratching into the canvas.
3 little miracles. Lucky me. I just need another 20 and I’ll be set. 😉
