So this is what those little canvasses ended up looking like!!!
I never know when I start out - and that is precisely what I love : the surprise and the sense of discovery as I let the painting decide where we are going; it is a lot of fun when it seems to flow along fairly smoothly as sometimes happens ----- but can also be extremely frustrating and upsetting when what I think is what the painting wants, turns out to be totally wrong - and I can't figure out how to fix it. Sometimes it really is like pulling teeth and I wonder why on earth I'm doing this?
And then all of a sudden something clicks, often after days or weeks of struggle, and I realize what I should have been doing instead - the sense of relief and joy when the painting is finally finished and I know that nothing more is needed but may actually do more harm than good - is indescribable!! And then I know why.
So now I feel empty and unsettled and wondering: what next???
