I’m here, I’m painting, I haven’t forgotten that I’ve got more to go. Actually, what I have is a bit of a backlog of paintings waiting for their turn in the sun. I needed some time to photograph them. Most of my paintings are scanned into the computer once I’ve completed them but the larger ones need to be photographed so I can show them to you – I’ve been working out the best way to do that and came upon just sitting them on my easel and giving you an easel shot once I’m done.
This is “dive” and she was the result of a fabulous collage class that I took over the summer. I love the strong graphic of the diver jumping from the board into the deep. Is it a pool, the ocean or a metaphor for something more or bigger? The fun of this exercise was figuring out how to simplify and still have a story to tell. I love this one – she’s going to end up hanging at the beach.
