blue and buff titanium
I have been busy clearing up my art room which is a time consuming business! Time seems to fly by and before I know it many months passed and I find I have collected a great deal of unnecessary stuff. One being heaps of cardboard boxes I actually believe will be useful one day! and also a massive bag full of old carrier bags or plastic shopping bags again that become completely forgotten once I have stored them away! Also far too many art books, brushes, paints and more paints galore, kept for years! The thing about clutter is that you somehow fail to see it after a while. I have to ask myself do I really need this! most of all is it actually useful and of course does it give me joy! Anyway I still can't move in my art room because I have turfed out everything from the cupboards, drawers and boxes.
In the midst of all this chaos I found this painting in a box. I started a little while ago putting things into boxes, and one of the things I put into boxes are paintings! I really enjoy opening a box and not knowing what is inside it! Mind you the problem with this is that I have heaps of boxes with stuff in it that I don't see unless I open the box! so I think it is still classed as clutter! I have now released this painting from it's box and remember painting it and then keeping it safe in a box until I wanted it. This was actually a long time ago maybe even ten years ago it has rested quietly within a box and now it is on my art room wall. I remember being pleased with the buff titanium paint and the blue which is so bright and pretty, I managed to blend it into the sky colour too. The best thing is that when I viewed this painting again I felt happy and uplifted by the blue. It is just a small painting only 12 x 12 inches but I do feel inspired to paint this again on a really big canvas!
I hope you are all well my painting friends, it is so quiet here in blogging land, everyone seems to be on facebook these days. I guess this is a quiet and secret garden to be in!
Happy painting to you all!
