a certain trajectory
I posted a version of this painting two weeks ago, and I have been working on it ever since. I think I have got it to where it is no longer a work in progress and is complete. A simplification. I also have made good progress on another new painting in this series, which I plan to show you next week.
This week, I had intended to work on my Etsy works for my all too empty shop Artmaven. I have the paper taped off, gessoed and ready, some even already coated with my more typical colors of red, aqua and gold, but each time I sat down to work on them, a new white series painting called out to be realized. I love working in color but right now I just need this coolness, I need this contrast, this watery world of charcoal, line, splatter and drip. This is the only thing that wants to be born currently and so the white series continues...
