Now what?

Skypads 5--after  a couple of coats of white on the pads and a couple more thin paint pours.

Skypads 5–after a couple of coats of white on the pads and a couple more thin paint pours.

It doesn’t look like a lot has been done since the last post, and that’s because–well, it hasn’t. This one is so different that I have fallen into my usual routine of procrastinating because I don’t know where I’m going. Then there’s all the time spent waiting for a juicy sloppy layer of paint pour to dry before I can do anything on top of it without lifting paint off in the process.

So as usual, I shall stare at this for a couple of days and see if any suggestions come to mind. Or maybe just call it done.

    This is why I can’t ever be an artist – no patience to sit around waiting for paint to dry. By that time, I’ve lost inspiration.
    Carry on!

    Hardly any such thing as inspiration. 10% inspiration, 90% perspiration, as Thomas Edison is reputed to have said. This is more like random play. I mess with it, then it takes a couple of days for me to decide if it’s working or not. The inspiration came from a bunch of photos I shot last summer, but that was over in a few moments. It was merely the idea. If I posted the photos you would not recognize them in the paintings. Which is why I don’t post them LOL!
