All such "rules" are based upon studies and meaningless pathways ... to a child's mind and pleasure. It is unfortunately often too late in our lives, that a real Truth we finally come to understand and embrace dawns upon us. A revelation (from a poet, Leonard Cohen in his Selected Poems 1956-68) that "there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in."
This learning and freedom that I am sharing with you through this blog and today's painted work... (still in progress) is sent as a "reveal"... to the "Big Magic" that only now I am discovering. After a lifetime of pursuing goals that were controlled by a market and goals that were less enviable to me as time passed.
Here is the sum total of the "free play" I have enjoyed for a number of months now. It has lain dormant... waiting for me to resume... or to put to sleep. Neither would have been a wrong path...because I had full control t whatever outcome I felt was possible.
Enough said. Here is that "Four Square... still in progress. What do you think? I'm open to your ideas and input. Just interested in your "read" because you have travelled with me and continued to encourage me through all of my struggles.
What remains is to "turn on the lights" to create the darks and some finishing strokes. Just a couple though.
I will stand by... and stay tuned..
Happy Summer Painting... to ALL!!
