|Paint it OUT! – painted using acrylic paint on large canvas while listening to fave music.|
The other day I spent a good solid 4 hours in my studio doing just that. I found a big old canvas, chose a few colours I felt like painting and put my fave music on (which at the moment is The Cure, Standing on a Beach). The canvas started out the other way around with black at the top but when I had finished painting, I turned it around to paint the sides and decided I liked it better with the black at the bottom. Not sure where the red came from - I didn't choose it but somehow it managed to work its way in during the process. Sneeky...
I love painting like this – no plan just letting it go, letting it out on a blank canvas using colour and my hands. I can look at that canvas now and see exactly where my head was at, how I was feeling - a snap shot of before. All that crap that was stopping me from creating has been expelled and captured on a canvas... much better there than in my head! ;)
Feeling so much better now... x
