A few posts ago I announced about my art audition for an upcoming show at Austin local gallery, Art for the People, and mentioned I’d had a couple of my Impressionist Abstract panoramas chosen!
One, the red version, already had its sides painted, but the newer blue version didn’t, so I got to work right away. Like I tell folks who like hearing ’bout how I put these together, painting the sides almost always takes as long or longer than the painting!
Well, lol, when I work on the painting proper, the facing side, I’m pretty much in another world juggling feeling / intuition / design / and just plain what do I like ’bout how the painting’s coming along — but the sides! That requires fitting in the side design to the front facing piece.
Not like a canvas mirror print, but organically.
Not necessarily mirrored lines or shapes, colors or tones, but approximations of continuation.
But not “exact” continuation” – which would deflect from the front.
What I aim for is believable enhancement…
…one that takes you easily and gently, and most importantly, willingly…
to the face of painting.
Painted one side at a time to let the paint dry. But I think it’s worth it. Though I’m thinking through ways to entice the 8-nearly-9 year old to want to help do that job ❤️😊
I’ll be sure & let ya’ll know if & when that happens, lol!
Stay well everyone! 💕
