Balance

 And then.... I played! With paint :)  We watched a Gerhard Richter documentary last night and I guess it inspired me. Suddenly I felt the urge to "wipe" my painting of  Sister in Richter style and 'scrape' rather than wipe. And this is the result.


I kinda like it! I've never done anything like this before (I have been known to cut a painting into pieces, though,  if I don't like it!) so I'm not quite sure if it's finished. I'll have to look at it for a few days to decide. I do have a title, though...'Veiled'.

Then, I returned to the painting I started a week or so ago and 'finished' it. This is the result:

 "Ehhh" was my first thought. But even though it was just "Ehhh", I listed it on Etsy and set it up to be listed on Daily Paintworks. Then... I started scraping again. Yep! I think I'm liking this scraping thing! I would put it a step above finger painting, but still. I painted for two hours straight and it felt like 20 minutes. Fun!  This is the result.
 I don't think this one is finished, but, again, I'm going to look at it for a few days to figure it out. I know I'm going to work on the bottom half a little more. (Oh, and yes, I deleted the listing from Etsy and Daily Paintworks!) The title for this one... 'Ten Years'.


Hope you're having a great weekend!  Juli
