I'm not as prolific as I was
But then again I'm not depressed and manic anymore either. I'll keep the less productive and happier version of me. I'll also keep a certain person who's part of making me less productive but much happier.
I've been enjoying the abstract expressionist paintings of Joan Mitchell. I'm looking forward to seeing a couple of her things at the Corcoran and other museums in DC in a couple of weeks. I'm sure pictures don't do her work justice; there's just too much texture. So she's inspired me recently and here are a couple of examples.
The first is a fairly big canvas that happened pretty quickly. I doubt it's finished.
"Out of Control" Acrylics on canvas 24" x 30"
This next one has evolved. It's much closer to being finished and I like it better than "Out of Control". This is definitely one where 2d just doesn't show much.
"They Filled the Sky" Acrylics on canvas 24" x 18"
