Art Spring Break 2018

 

One Angel Ready wm 2 4-3-18 Spring Break series

“One Angel Ready”

 

 

I planned Spring Break at about the same time as I was making resolutions. I am keeping the Art Spring Break 2018 plan.

While friends and family are taking a break traveling I am making good on a pledge.

This week I explore different ways to express the fundamentals of Art.

  • Exploring a variety of unfamiliar modes of making or representing concepts. Shapes come to mind for instance.
  • Experimenting with known materials but used in a different way.
  • Enlarging my visual vocabulary using images and postponing judgment.
  • Experiencing the media in the moment rather than going for a plan or assumption of what I am processing on the canvas.

 

In exploring I find I must question my biases and assumptions about Art.

Small format paintings have some large challenges, overcoming these and opening new ways of seeing the composition is the result.
