(close to my heart)
I started four new works today and although over the Christmas, New Year break I have really enjoyed having the kitchen table free of paper, scissors, glue sticks, paints, cutting mats and pencils etc... it feels so good to be making a mess again.
I have decided I am going to concentrate on colour this year... I think to tell the truth I am actually a little afraid of colour. I often choose brightly coloured papers for the backgrounds but once I start adding to them they end up being almost white (I might as well have started out with a piece of photocopy paper)!
So anyway that is something I'm going to have a go at... that's not to say that I wont be doing any softer coloured paintings, I have two of them on the go as well.
So the painting above is my first attempt, I am loving the energy the green and red have when put together, looks a little Christmasy I think? And this is the first painting I have scanned on my new scanner... it comes out slightly different to the scanner I have been using in the past but having my own scanner at home makes it really nice to be able to share this on my blog at 9:40 on Sunday night.
