I have a difficult time verbalizing the imaginative origins of my individual works.
I can easily discuss the influences though. Illustrators past and present are always at the top of the list, as are objects from the natural and man-made world. And then there's music. I'm no different than any artist I know; the influence list goes on and on.
In this case, one of the the stimuli for Distrust--of which these are details--was symmetry.
Well, not-quite-symmetry. I love it.
I also love wood and wood carvings.
Distrust (unfinished). Watercolor, 5" x 8".
The only thing in this photo that's not completed is the bird's walking stick. I didn't realize that when I took the pic.
And the reason I uploaded this painting as unfinished? I seem to have lost every image of the finished work. No kidding. So sometimes I can be pretty good at painting watercolors with not-quite-symmetry and carved wood. I am never good with organization. Technology has only made it worse, and that's a fact.
As always, I appreciate your visit!
