The cowwoman has been hung out and dried lately. This occasions angst. Angst occasions paintings with a whole lot of kinetic energy. I learned this new process from a weekend workshop. Couldn't get his style, though. This work is the result of many, many layers of paint, thinly applied and each layer sealed with a layer of acrylic varnish. I just love this piece. It is visual proof of the healing process I am experiencing in therapy. And my therapist wants to buy it! I don't know what "artful" is, but I think this is close to it. It is complicated, full of energy, a burst of creativity I didn't know I had in me. I just ordered 6 more cradled boards like this one to work on, and oeuvre # 2 is currently reposing on the board. I slap at it several times a day. It is taking its time revealing itself to me. This is okay. Probably I will begin another, then come back to it. It's really all just amazing fun, art.
