I have to say that I never did work on that urban landscape that I had planned to do. Or the scientific portrayal of herbalism. Or the abstract representation of nature. But I have enough faces to cover the warm brick walls at iYo Cafe in Davis Square, and that’s representational of my work. Although the request of more diverse subjects did interest me, it’s just not reflective of what I actually paint.
I find this interesting mainly because I am such a scatterbrain. I am what has been termed a scanner; I don’t like being confined to one focus or subject in any aspect of my life. And yet here, when diversity was requested, I found comfort in faces, and only faces. Hm.
Anyway, I just finished priming a new canvas and am anxious to start a new painting. A dog face.
