I have been so very busy these past couple of weeks, moving out of my old studio into a new one and I have not been able to post. I see I have been tagged twice ! Thank-you and I am honored. I am having a hard time finding folks to tag since every one I would tag has already been tagged . So I will "symbolically" tag some artists work which I think should be seen . Most of these artists are not involved in the "blog" world as we know it.
I will tag them in the next post as I am just starting my day and I need a little time to find the websites. You won't be disappointed!
Seven things about myself........unusual.
1-I am really bad at this because I am not very clever, or have a natural ability when it comes to writing. I admire those who have the gift! (I am thinking Silvina)
2-I am a lot older then I think I am.
3-I own seventy different tubes of paint colors and use 3 or 4 at a time plus black and white.
4-I very rarely if ever, paint on a white ground. Sometimes a grey, teal , ochre and venetian red ground. Sometimes it is a wash, other times it is opaque.
5- I do not draw on my canvas with charcoal or pencil when I start a piece. I will very loosely , sketch in with a brush. But I have been known to go into a piece with pencil lines during the process of painting or when a piece is near finished. I like the way that technique looks.
6- I have always loved abstract expressionism and painted abstracts for a number of years.
7-And last but not least I would probably kill for a really good piece of chocolate!
