Today I started making a study for a possible entry into the Rochester Contemporary Art Center's 6x6x2012 exhibit. I have been wanting to incorporate my childhood home into some artwork for a while.
I made a minor change to the Kati as Frida piece - switching the red outline to light blue. I like it better, but I need to do a second layer when it dries to cover the red completely.
It has been sort of a long weekend and I am exhausted. I am feeling good though because I exceeded my art goals for last week. Looking ahead, I think I am going to strive to make some more elaborate drawn studies for future paintings. That is something I haven't really done in a while. I think it would be very benificial because I would like to add some more complexity to my work (through composition, conceptually, and with use of materials) . I am yearning more depth (both literally and content-wise), but I'm not sure how I want to get there. Some time to draw through ideas will do me good. Maybe a trip to the library is in order as well... Okay, time to make dinner and hopefully get to bed early tonight. Back to the kiddos tomorrow!
