seriously. Crappy painted paper. That's what is happening right now. I'm learning to trust, I'm willing to try something new. The assignment was "paint to music". So, I put on some music (Barber Adagio for Strings, "Good to Me, Audrey Assad) and painted. The issue is the paint-acrylics. The only thing acrylics have going for them, for me, is the super cleanability without toxins. Water and soap, so nice. But, so far, the paint is eluding me. Monday and Tuesday were comprised of me stomping around and being angry as paint was sticking to paper. Crappy painted paper. That's what was happening.
Today, though, I decided to chill. Listen to the music, and paint.
It's still crappy painted paper, but there's not the anger attached to the work. Maybe we'll get somewhere, maybe not. BUT it's okay to just apply paint to paper while listening to music.
These won't go anywhere. I might gesso (something I learned about, GESSO- I love it. You can paint with gesso over a painting and erase. NICE. In the meantime, you can feel the energy, the creation. Intuition versus judginess. PLAY.
