Hidden goddess / 8"x10" / acrylic on canvasToday I began studio/instruction class with Laurie Wonfor Nolan. Love it! A whole day to work with a great group of talented artists... *heaven!* On the way to her studio I was trying to think what I could paint for a series over the course of these sessions but drew a blank. I spent a good deal of time working on a still life and with half an hour left realized it was a lost cause, flipped my canvas on it's side and began painting a new still life over top. When Laurie came by she thought I should just leave it (as you see it now). She talked about it working as a painting, that it didn't need to be completely logical to read well and my homework is to study Matisse and Cezanne (the kind of homework I like : ) So there is a good chunk of the previous painting showing through underneath - and I really like it. Also I hit upon what I will do for my series. I have a raft of old painted canvasses and will be using them as a ground for new still life pieces, playing with perspective and abstraction.
