... bingo! flowers! ....


i painted today ... a lot ... after the dentist (for boy.beck.artist, not me) and between five thousand phone calls (i hate being a phone call person) i spent quite a lot of time in my studio painting ... i spent long enough in there that i turned the tv on to keep me company ... i couldn't find the remote (probably a good thing) so i just stayed on hgtv ... i'm usually drawn to mtv and vh1 when no one is home ... so it's good i couldn't change the channel and gawk ...

i worked on eight canvases .... one a commission, the rest for fun ... oh for speculation ... is that what it is ... to just paint to paint ... am i speculating that someone might buy them? ...

a lot of the time when i do simpler pieces with words, i reuse the words ... for instance, it will be ok... i've sold bunches of canvases with those words ... apparently that's something that people need to hear .... so, i reuse the ones that sell well ... i still get the joy of the painting and the cutting and gluing and such .... but there's not a ton of rethinking on the words ... well .. unless i'm doing a quote, then i look for one i love ....

but, here are new words ....
new to me ... i was just going to say grow ... or keep growing ( i still like that, we're all supposed to keep growing, right?) ... but then i though of bloom instead of grow ... and then , well, there ya go ... i got a whole bossy thing going : grow! bloom! flourish! keep learning and loving and being and changing and flourish! ... know what i mean?

so there you go .... a painting ... and a blog post on a painting ... and , presumably, i'll have time to finish another tomorrow .... and the next day ... or the next day .... still growing, you see .....

The numbers on this one are great. I immediately thought of a birthday present - the particular birthday number wouldn't have to be there but it seems "brithday-ish".

Next? (I'm not only nosey, I'm the tiniest bit impatient,hahaha)

Art does not reproduce what is visible; it makes things visible.
