Contemporary Modern Art
Acrylic on 24" x 48" (1.5) canvas
Maze: a confusing, intricate network of winding pathways: labyrinth.
Worked on this one ALL DAY yesterday with many changes occurring throughout the day. I began at 6:00 in the morning, took a lunch break with my parents and then back to work until supper and then .... needless to say I so obsessed over it yesterday that I woke up early this morning thinking about more changes. Many of these were recorded as I would photograph the painting and then seeing the image on the screen would help me to see more. .... and so this went on:)
And so how do you know when a painting is done? This is a good question and I believe it is different for every artist. I have discovered that for me it is when I am standing there with brush in hand and can not find another stroke to make. As far as time wise, this can happen within a very short amount of time or can take for who knows how long. I got to that point of knowing late last night, but I also know that coming back in the next day with a fresh perspective is what gives me the confidence in knowing it's done.
Early this morning.... I awoke thinking about yet another change... went in, turned the studio lights on... had a fresh perspective.... and yes!... it's done!!
