My drawing and painting life
Flowers of sadness revisited. My installmentt on day 19 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
I painted these in July. The sadness had to do with the illness of a friend. Since then I’ve revisited the image and painted similar paintings both of the same size (20x20cm) and larger. I was quite happy when it turned out I could make this grow bigger in size (40x40cm).
The two are both in the studio, can’t show them together yet, since I’ve not been able to go there to make a photo. I will have to see whether larger than that is possible, I used my fingers to paint, and fingers don’t grow bigger, you can only use them more boldly, but how far will that take me. It’ll be interesting to experiment other ways to ‘grow’ these.
I was feeling a bit down last night. My knee issues are slowly improving, but really slowly. When I do go there, I have to cycle for half an hour and will probably suffer the consequences of pain in the leg at night. It’s getting on my nerves that I can’t go to the studio right now and haven’t been able to use it the way I really wanted to when I started it, namely to paint big. First I fell ill, next I had a shoulder problem (almost healed but still not completely). The 100 small paintings were fun to do, and may lead to larger paintings, but hey, I would have loved to have the choice when to go small, or when big.
