I started working on another painting of a total stranger. Early stages, never really know how to approach it, always feel like “this is a total failure” and always seem to forget that I have to add layers, let the paint dry and then go at it again. Eventually something happens. Wonder what will happen this time? And why am I doing this? I could be out there selling machines or something more profitable.
After a Holiday Seasons break with a visit by our daughter Victoria and her lovely Kristoffer, I am back in the creative mode. At Evoke Contemporary there was an accident – one of my steel pieces fell to the floor with a terrible “clang” when they were re-hanging their space. The piece got twisted and banged up, but I was able to straighten it out and allowed myself to be a bit creative.
The blue on red creates a funny optical effect. A kachina doll is creeping up behind… Below a fun picture of Victoria and Kristoffer, while we are dealing in shadows.
