Well Yes! What’s the point of doing the same thing over and over without different results. Some people would call me an idiot! I get bored and need to change things up a bit. So, there are times when I nose around in Pentrist or my old photos from vacations long forgotten and get new ideas. I try them, and if i like them, I’ll paint my version of a similar piece of work. It never looks the same, but looks like something I’ve been working on. I am an abstract artist, and that means anything, and everything is open for interpretation. I don’t mean to copy, and I’m not. But we all share a creative energy, and there isn’t anything that hasn’t been done before, so I say go for it!
This isn’t going so well. As I paint a color, I’m thinking it’s fighting me. I don’t know where it will go, but it doesn’t start behaving soon, this little canvas will find itself gessoed over, and it won’t have a voice at all. Needless to say, it isn’t even close to finished, or maybe it is quite close to finished!
