"Communication"


People always ask me, why did you draw this, paint this? What are your thoughts? I wish I could say that I carefully planned each painting out, but that never happens. I sometimes have a direction that I want to go but that changes the minute I start the painting. For instance, I knew the colors I wanted to create in this piece, and I thought I would make my houses. But after the background paint went on, I immediatly drew "souls". (as I call them),,,,,,and why four of them? I don't know, they just seem to fit on the painting better that way.

So,,, then I think why did I paint these instead of houses, I'm not sure, but the answer is, is that I just "go with the flow". My paintings are in control of me, I'm never in control of them. I like it that way. So, my advise is to open yourself up, see what happens!

These are great. I know what you mean about the piece taking you where it wants to go rather than vice-versa.

Question: When you write with pencil over a piece, do you have to use clear gesso? I've used c.g. but then it's so rough I have to put several coats of medium over it to even it out...

Hi Karen,

I use pitt pens over acrylic, they are waterproof. Then I use a clear gel medium over the piece for protection.

I can relate to your post about "why" and often am just as baffled about why I draw what I draw. Great work. :-)
