|Petite Zinnias oil on canvas 12 x 4 x 1.5|
Likewise, I like to vary the format of a work....horizontal one work and vertical another. Standard rectangles seem boring to me for the most part. And then there is scale. Working on a large project with large brushes and big sweeping strokes might then be followed with a smaller, tighter work. Oil paintings are countered with watercolors and drawings. All of this variation keeps me interested. It keeps me feeling enthusiastic about the problems to solve. To some, I might be dancing all over the boards. But to me, the novelty of this way of working keeps me fresh, alive, interested.
What's up for today? Tackling a square work...........life is good.
