blue paint friday ....

my pal al came over to paint today .... 
i had an all white canvas that i was planning to paint tonally ... and then i got a new idea ... 
i taped it off in squares .... and then painted it light blue ... then i did letter stenciling in a darker blue ....
on the pic below, if you look carefully, you can see the masking tape bisecting that o p q bit ..... 
see it?
then here, you can see the masking tape coming up from that same o p q bit ....

then below that, you see the entire three foot square canvas with sixteen small boxes of blue joy ... what would you put in the boxes? or would you put one big thing over the boxes .... or one cat peeking out the window pane? what's this canvas say to you?  i actually already know and have begun the next bit ... but you'll have to wait til tomorrow for it .....
and then this last pic is just a glimpse of  where the canvas is standing now in the studio .... ready to be worked on ... just like that limb is waiting for something .... hmmmmm .... i used to have birds cut out for that limb ... now i don't know where they are! so ... i've got some painting going on ... quick, tell me whatcha think ... tomorrow i'll show you what i was thinking ....

well now, isn't that fun. :-) i like the one big thing hanging out all the squares idea. i'm determined to do something different and make me some fun art tomorrow.

It's so cool the way you can follow a color or pattern or design, whatever strikes you, and immerse yourself in it. Would make for an incredibly satisfying work life, I'd guess.
