So what I have learned from the three below, and my list of painting ‘numbers’ to the right, is that I like to start new things a lot more than I like to finish old ones. This seems odd to me because this is not the way I am at work, but it does explain all the unfinished personal projects at home… Maybe that’s part of the difference for me between work and things I do for fun. Anyway, it looks like I need to finish my paintings quickly, like in a day or a few days — probably no longer than a week, or it seems I’ll lose the interest and motivation.
So I painted Vaimse Maastiku in a day and had loads of fun doing it! 🙂 So what is it? I dunno, you tell me. I usually don’t have much in mind when I paint non-representational abstracts, and if they do become something in my mind as I paint them, it’s still usually only a vague something. I always love to hear your impressions, observations, and interpretations! Please comment! 🙂 But my vague idea of what this kind of is, is an abstract landscape with some vague “hills” under a clear blue sky with happy little puffy clouds — yeah, homage to Bob Ross there. I don’t use his method, but he sure was fun to watch! Other than that, this painting is mainly just about division of space and blending blues, greens, and yellows. It became landscapey as I painted it, again. I did not plan to do a landscape, it just became one as I painted. So I went with it and painted the sky. This is interesting to me. I wonder why I tend towards landscapes when I set out to paint non-representationally?
