I first mixed purple with the modeling paste and applied it with the palette knife. Then I mixed up some red with the modeling paste and applied that. Then it came to me to try applying the green with a sponge, just across the peaks left by the modeling paste. I painted onto the grid and then pressed the painted side of the grid down into the paste. I used a sponge to paint through the holes in the sequin waste. It was a creative adventure. Fun.
Painting, well creating things, is very meditative for me. The actions, the process are a joyful zone for many of us. Especially when I am free of worrying what others might think. When I am free from the nattering of my inner 'what were you thinking?' critic. When I am perfectly alright with painting over it and doing something else once I am finished.
What is it like for you? When you are on the inside of creating something?
When I was taking pictures of it, I realized that depending on which way I turned the piece, I saw different things.
This one makes me think 'The Red Sea'.
This way I see 'Stormy Weather' with lightening and turbulent winds.
These two make me think of trees.
