"Mistaken Identity" "She Gets Me"
Have you noticed a subtle shift in my work lately? I spent a couple of hours painting yesterday with some great loud and quiet tunes playing in my studio and when it was time to stop painting, I stood back and looked at these and thought....hmmm. If you remember in my last post I showed the backgrounds for these and they appeared light and sunny and now they feel a bit more earthy and somber. I really like these two pieces but it's almost as if they painted themselves in a way (does that ever happen to you?). They needed slightly deeper tones and textures than I normally use and although the two women I painted last week had a similar feel, I definitely took these two pieces a bit farther...what do you think? I have a third 9x12 piece in the works and two similar 3x5 blocks to share tomorrow.
