Day 23 Girls having a fun day out

Collage day 23 GirlsOn day 23 I stumbled upon this group of friends while painting. Meet Cynthia,Jess, Caroline and Diane.

Just making these quick paintings led me to little pieces of story.

I’ve been thinking about narrative painting lately. What I started during my art retreat in Italy in June, I would like to continue. Was that the reason that stories started to come up? Or just because these ask for it, as they are a group? I think that’s what it is. The moment there is more than one character, they start to interact.

It started out as another game of playing with different colors on faces. But they immediately developed into characters. I can see them sitting in the park or the woods near a stream , eat the food they brought and discuss their week. First they went to a museum, but they got tired with it. So they went to the park to have a picknick. And besides it’s fun to be talking together, isn’t it? You can’t do that in the museum.

Cynthia (in the middle) photographed in a museum, looking a bit surprised: “OMG, I have never, ever, seen something like that!”

Jess on the left:  “Is the photo done, yet? Can I move now, please?”

Caroline (second from left, and second from right) has organized the whole picknick, is fussing over the food, she is everywhere, talking talking talking. Perhaps that’s why she is in two pics?

Diane, stripey t-shirt on the right, she’s the sportswoman: “Did anyone bring a ball?”

And so on.
