This piece for me was a simple exercise using her pattern of circles, though mine are more ordered, as is my tendency. When working with free hand circles, the artist is forced to face the imperfections of the line. My challenge was to relent the battle.
There is something so light and liberating about being able to call a piece finished with so little on the canvas and so many obvious mistakes. I have ideas about next possible steps, but I am happy right now to call it done and let myself feel through it.
There is such a strong impulse, for me anyway, as an artist, to keep pushing on and on and fixing and adding more and more to a piece, Holding can be a challenge. With this piece I intentionally set out to keep it simple and keep it raw and rough and a little dizzying...A pocket full of posies.
