I’m loving Tara Leaver’s painting/art/creativity course.
End of week 4, and this is a detail from a painting I’m working on.
No shortage of fear to overcome in putting brush to paper. Tara is masterful at helping us get past it, or through it, I suppose, and into doing the work, and having fun!
I’m not sure I like the whole piece – still in progress, but I love this detail!
And, that’s a great start.
ps. Nothing in it for me to give Tara a plug. Just wanted to..it’s just been such a pleasure taking her course. Cheers.
This one has been lying around for a couple of weeks. Waiting.
I wished to post it right away. But, what to say?
There’s no great story to tell about how it was captured.
And, the subject isn’t really self-evident. It’s unusual and requires explanation.
Or, does it?
Well, it’s a fragment of the beautiful entrance-way overhang to a building downtown. The overhang is made of the water-like, blue-tinged glass, with the gorgeous texture beneath it. The glass windows of the second and third floors, (and beyond) reflect the construction across the street.
I simply like it. The texture. The colour. The reflections. It’s abstract. Un-knowable. There’s no flow for the eye to follow. No natural narrative to understand or assume.
It just is. Elements. Combined. Captured.
And, for now, in this moment, that’s enough.
