Much like a kid at the beach trying to save their sandcastle from the ceaseless rush of ocean – It is an almost endless process this painting thing.
But yet like most things, there is an end, or somewhere closer to the finishing line. I had a solo show open earlier this year and I had been playing catch up since returning from that seaside residency in February.
Out of interest I am showing you some of the paintings before (as they were in the show) and after, which I hope you will find as fascinating as I do.
These are an interesting pair, it’s a little like spot the difference. I’m already seeing things I’d like to change… Again…
Fascinatingly the older version (top painting) looks somewhat better on screen – I am however certain that it is much better in person, at over 6ft across it is difficult to get a real feel for it on screen… Isn’t it pretty to think so? Thank you Hemmingway.
Hope you are having a great week so far! Feel free to come and visit the studio if you are interested in the paintings. There is always something interesting going on in here!
Or go visit my latest show of miniature paintings at ‘CONTAINED’ 2nd – 19th September at Rubicon ARI, Level 1 – 309 Queensberry Street, North Melbourne.
