My very first cycle out on the canvas, the mapping out the points and those first few layers really was a stunning piece on its own with almost no further steps. There was such a powerful gracefulness about it, and the scale really encouraged it. Perhaps darken a few lines or so, but little else.
It takes a lot of courage to put so little on the canvas, especially a large canvas like this one (48"x48"). Maybe it is confidence, maybe with time and experience one knows when to see the final piece, or, perhaps every one of us must grapple with when to call it complete.
Or is a piece ever truly finished?
See yesterday's post for my latest version. I am stuck at that final juncture...or, if I take another step, I might feel more settled and pleased, but...I risk a bad move and then additional steps to accommodate for it, with not too much space to spare...or do I run the design off the edge? Sigh. This really is a process oriented piece. It's an interesting project to document as so many different angles (no pun intended) keep coming up with each ste. I suppose that every piece is a process of some kind, even if it is slinging dripping paint at a canvas.
I have this additional question to decide upon and that is, Glitter or no Glitter? To Sparkle or not to Sparkle? I really love using the glitter on my pieces.
