I am participating to the new project, «Out of the Journal», started by Samantha and Dina: create two canvases a week. If possible 8×10 or more. I combine this with our 52 paintings done in 52 weeks. Here is Sam’s blogpost for more clarity: right there.
I really enjoyed this week’s paintings, that allowed me to complety get out (and pretty far away) of my usual creative comfort zone…
I love working on wood panels, but I don’t know why I stopped using them. This is such a different surface to work on, I just love it. I am a wood lover, and this time I really wanted it to still be visible.
She is filled with imperfection and amateurism. But I love her colorful shimmering hair (I will try to catch that later). Her body is white with blue shimmers. The words are not written big enough. But there is something about this painting that just yell at me «I am enough as I am, don’t try to perfect me»… So I simply listen 😉
Sometimes, the message is more important.
Oh my goodness…. this one brings me a lot of joy. She is not totally finished yet though. She is created on stretched canvas (surface I do not use that much anymore either…).
I began with two intertwined intentions: add a little bit of collage and play with colors, not mater what the media is.
I played with spray inks and then with white paint. Then, she emerged from there a few day later… My daughter can’t help but tell me how long her neck is. That’s true. And I love how my girls have this «me» thing that I can now speak of, but every single each of them is unique. Longer nose for one, longer neck… whatever it is, I just paint what I see.
I can’t wait to hear what message she has to whisper to me 🙂
This is it for my third week Out Of the Journal !
