I tried to finish a painting this week and got really frustrated it didn’t work out.

Really I wanted to be trying to do work like this again. I recently brought this home after it had been stored at my moms for many years.

So my husband said maybe I should blog this old painting as inspiration.

Here it is on my easel and you can see how raw that cardboard is!

I wasn’t exactly encouraged to do work like this back at school (but I did it anyway). Now I’m not sure I know how to get back to that and develop it.  Hmmm.

    I love the art that talks to me. Maybe, the difficulty you are feeling is because your inner-self has grown up since 92. How about starting something similar from a scratch, then you might get in the right mood to finish the 92 art? I look forward to seeing new personality in your art.

    I really like this.

    Something I’ve always wondered about abstract art is, how does the artist know what should go in the painting? As I appreciate the aesthetics and the emotion that a piece like this conveys, I marvel at how it’s possible for anyone to look at a blank canvas and create the finished work from nothing. If you ever feel like writing about the process, I’ll be very interested.

    And on an unrelated note (posted here because my e-mail’s been flaky lately), I finally wrote about your “Everybody Knows About Me” cover art on the Cinder Bridge blog: http://cinderbridge.blogspot.com/2008/07/cover-art-for-everybody-knows-about-me.html. *grin*
