Notes from the Deckle Edge
Snow...a nice change. Really pleased with the framing of this latest piece, it turned out just as I had pictured. I don't believe I will ever finish this last piece! I have been working on it since OCTOBER! Okay, I did stop to paint this one painting, and was interrupted by the holidays and travel, but it is wearing me out. Sometimes you have to put away your "be perfect" mentality. How do people do that again? Anyone out there watching the 31 days of Oscar on TCM? I watched "Lust for Life" about Van Gogh, but the thing that struck me was one scene where Gauguin came to live with him and Vincent had cooked dinner in the same pot in which he made paint. I wonder if there is any evidence to support that scene. The best part were the stills of his work. His landscapes are unbelievable.
Negative/Positive...my favorite thing. Embracing and dancing with this design concept is my favorite pastime as a painter. Have been very inspired lately by Henry Kaiser, check him out. Industrialist.
