I just wanted to take a moment to share my latest painting. I actually finished this one last week, but I’ve been struggling harder the last few weeks, so I’ve been slower to post. This piece will not be listed for sale on Etsy. This one just didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped.
This is a mixed media piece on an 11×14 canvas panel. It was created primarily with acrylic paint, molding paste and string gel. This piece, similar to the one before it, symbolizes my struggle to keep the mess at bay by creating boundaries. I wanted to show how the mess bled through, and my attempt to sort through the tangled and stained mess.
I don’t like this piece very much. I think that I portrayed what I intended to, but I think I just don’t want to think that my past was that ugly. It wasn’t all bad, but when I think about the best times that I had when I was young, those were times that we were trying to make the best out of a bad situation.
Well, I better stop before I say things that I shouldn’t. I have started a new piece, which I hope will be finished sometime this week, though it might take longer. We got a membership at the YMCA and we all signed up for a class, which means we have something going on almost every night of the week now, but keeping busy helps.
Thanks for reading,
