For the ones who know that keeping at it creates the fun beautiful pieces we paint I am keeping at it. I am encouraging you to do the same. Designing, drawing, erasing and looking for inspiration in my painting. This week all the elements of color and design came together.
We spent an afternoon with friends eating good food and watching football. My friend asked me to help arrange her, “Glassy Baby” collection. All of her colors matched fabric I purchased to cover a chair.
Keeping at it is about always seeing color, design and then the finished pieces in my head starting with a blank canvas. With colors from candles & fabric the idea hit me.
I am working on an entire collection. Painting three canvases, painting a chair and painting a screen. (Room divider).
It’s an aggressive attempt at working out the colors and the design on so many pieces to coordinate. And I am keeping at it. It is not always easy. Why? Commitments in my day and the start and stops. I am on a break for a couple of days away from my studio. Writing and thinking that no matter how many starts and stops to just, “Keep At It” when I can.
So many things in our daily lives to inspire art you love. Reflecting, writing and painting. God designed my brain to design and create. Cheers to, “Keeping At It”.
