This group of paintings are small in scale 12X12 and 20X20. It can be so refreshing to work small. The mind is less attached to outcome. There are five pieces in the slideshow, all are square format. The scale sets the stage to experiment with color, brush stroke, mark making, layering and glazing. With this group of paintings I felt a lovely sense of flow and joy in anticipation… what will happen if?
I sometimes have the same experience larger scale however not as often. There can be a lot of excitement created in looking at elements in the smaller work and thinking I want to see a whole wall of That! Since I am preparing for my show here in Santa Fe in October we will see which ideas translate to the big screen.
