Conway Road & Rte. 163
I was literally dismayed while I worked on this piece. The wallpaper pieces were laid down first, and then I tried to ignore the bright patterns while I did the watercolor on top. I really had trouble with that, my brain was whining!
I am happy with this in the end. There's no people in it...something I am struglling with lately. I have an internal argument going on about ...to people or not to people. Strange, but I used to do paintings that NEVER had any trace of man in them. Now, I struggle to do collage without a person in it. I thought it had to do with me not wanting to draw people, but then I sat back recently and sketched a bunch of people. My skill, that's not the problem. It has to do with the subject matter of the piece, and my personalization and personification of the whole experience.
Whew. That sounds like a weird paragraph, but I shall leave it in, so maybe you can understand you are dealing with a crazy woman.
