It is Sunday and I am not quite sure where the heck the week went to. Today I am spending the day painting. Yep, Mike is upstairs watching football. "yuck" I am putting on some music and doing something I have not done before. Well not on a full scale. I am very... hhhmmm... how should I put this..... "atypical" "abby-normal" LOL What ever it is, I have this "thing" that there must be balance. Example, If there are three apples on the left side of a basket there has to be three of something on the other side of the basket. Items have to be lined up perfectly, not jumbled or messed up, or out of control looking things. Starting to get the idea? Clutter will drive me to craziness. Soooooo I said all of that to tell you that I am attempting some abstract art. You would think this would be so easy, throw some paint on a canvas and call it a day. Not soooo at all. I have been studying this for sometime now. I find that at some level it does appeal to my quirkiness. There IS a balance, a method, a format to creating something that comes from deep inside. A picture in your brain that one can emit to canvas with an explosion of color and design. I do this, to some extent, already with beading and leather. Now, it is time to take this to the canvas.
This is my drive for 2014 wish me luck.
