Good morning, world. Perhaps just 'morning'.
I've started a project on a watercolor block in an effort to practice different applications of this concept of 'stickers' over abstract backgrounds. It's a perfect blend of wanting to paint gesturally with emotion and wanting to present nonsensical/surreal subjects. It's a way to mix abstract work with my desire to paint more detail on a perfectly not-overwhelming small scale.
The two pieces below have surfaced in the wake of Charlottesville, with the first being started before learning of the event (and finished while processing), and the one at the bottom an image that kept popping up for me to paint in the days following.
