Cleaning to Painting WEEN
This Huge canvas was screaming my name this weekend! I've been putting off painting something so big because there is no room in this tiny apartment. I had a good clean out of my studio- made room for the giant easel. I found tons of old paint,and some really hard brushes in the back of a drawer. The canvas was an old "dud"(a painting that didn't work out so well). A perfect mix!! So began... moving things, setting up, getting water,towels, beer, just the right album for the needle,lighting,then...I took a seat.
I didn't know what to paint, so i started with the color and let the music move me.
Music of choice was Chocolate and Cheese by WEEN. Since i was listing to an LP- every few songs i had to get up and flip the record. It broke my concentration every time, so the painting has a few different lives in it.
At the end of the weekend I had a beautiful base for a painting.
Looking forward to it's next layers!
