I think I finished a new piece today:
untitledSo...no actual subject in this piece. There was one there, but it felt so forced - so it got covered over and reworked and here's where I am.
I have to say, I really like it. But I've not done any completely non-representational work yet, and I find myself wondering if this piece is valid if it's not really about a thing? Or maybe I'm needing just a small bit of encouragement to help me listen to the inner voice that's trying to tell me Hey- this works! It's done- be happy!
Anyone have any comments or constructive criticism for me?
update- after such helpful feedback, leading to just a little change:
*******Other creative energies have been going toward a certain 6-year old's Harry Potter birthday party. My youngest turns 7 at the end of the month, which marks the last 'themed' birthday party I plan on throwing (after this it's the ol' invite some friends to a bowling alley for an hour). I tend to pour a LOT of creative energy into their parties- and have a ton of fun doing so. Themes in the past have been Construction, Outer Space, Bionicles, Bakugons, Science Experiments and Insects. I love that we're going out with Harry Potter as the last one- we're all huge fans.
I've never been great about posting pics of the parties in the past- but this time, I'm going to use up a little blog-space to show it off.
So far, we've sent the invites, and I've labeled jars for potions ingredients:
More to come!
