The indecisive background

This background for Sky Pads 34 was poured on the same day as the one for Sky Pads 33. I don’t remember what day that was, but it was a long time ago. At least sometime before October of last year. And when I finished 33 I just kept looking at this background without a single idea of what to do with it.

I had the drawing done at the same time 33 was drawn, but it didn’t seem to fit the pattern of the quite obvious downward swooshes of purple paint in spite of my efforts to make them less powerful at the time of pouring it.

I’m sure there millions of people like me who have sudden ideas when they’re tossing in bed trying to get some sleep while simultaneously seeking the solution to a problem. I finally had one of those tossing/turning/fussing nights that suddenly pushed an answer out of my brain.

Let’s just say I have a plan now. It will be revealed soon. I promise…

  1. I often refer to those moments as ‘birthing pains..’ or later realize that it wasn’t that I had birthed it, but it had finally won control but I had to get out of its way!

    I’m glad YOU have a plan! I certainly haven’t. Like you I tossed and turned over a painting last night and this morning I realize the only solution is to gesso the whole thing out!!! Well, that happens too sometimes.
