My blogging buddy Susanne Iles is not only on the same diet as me but an artist too and very creative indeed. She told me about Illustration Friday
a great site for getting your creative jucies flowing. They have a weekly topic and this week it's "Clutter."
My 'Clutter' painting started off it's life as a painting of Audrey but I covered that portrait over with black paint because I wasn't too happy with her mouth and I didn't want a useless canvas cluttering up my space
Then I started putting the paint that I have left over after my painting sessions onto the canvas and after several months it ended up looking like this
But it's a work in progress and I intend painting Audrey's face right in the middle of this clutter when I've finished the two other paintings I am working on. When it's finished it will be hung on my wall. Not for sale.
Here is another one which I gave a similar treatment to and which also took a long time to complete. Also made up of left over paint and hanging for sale in the D4 Art Gallery, Ballsbridge.
