Just played again today.
Turned to painting to counteract some early morning tears.
Rowena, the inspiration behind this 100 in 100 project, had suggested something to me. I was liking my closeup photos better than the whole picture quite often. So, she suggested I try to paint "closeup" to begin with. Not consider the edges of the paper as my frame. Let the images run beyond the size of the page.
I liked trying that. All at once the painting felt bigger. My strokes felt freer.
But I realize that one of the things I like about my closeup photos is that I shift the orientation of the picture, turning left and right into diagonals. I'm sure I could paint that way to begin with . . . either I have to think about it more, or maybe less.
Anyhoo, I had fun.
