Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study every day for a year.
Life and hot, humid weather have had their way with me the last few days. These studies have been waiting a week to post. But after a few days, I am enthused to find them bold and refreshing. They reinforce what I felt when I created them–a freedom in what I took away and how focus could be brought to the nuances of color. The mystery of what lay underneath. The pleasure and slightly unusual variations in palette and juxtaposition of hue, value, and opacity.
For me, there is a new joy in the eternal life of earlier iterations of what made this piece what is has become. There is endless learning, creating, and speaking through the brothers and sisters cloned from the earlier versions. It is like the child we were meeting the adult we are. From that comes a new and exciting energy and the fascinating journey through the artist’s way.
