“Good enough” is NOT when it comes to my art. It’s a big red flag that more work needs to be done when that thought crosses my mind. I’m not happy yet and I may need to set it aside to contemplate it awhile.
There was a beam of light in the back that was gnawing on me like a piece of food stuck in my tooth. I got some inspiration from an art magazine I was reading, “Art International.com”. I put some paint on and scraped some paint off creating an interesting texture and depth. More depth is what was needed. Vigorous painting and scraping ensued. “Yes! This worked.” However…
Now the lower left corner—which was more or less an impression of folds of the tablecloth—looks out of place and definitely was competing with the more defined areas of the bottles. So I reworked that area in the same manner as the rest of the tabletop and it fits much better, don’t you think?
“Glass Catches Light” is my entry in the Mid-Michigan Art Guild Summer show at the Shiawassee Art Center beginning June 28, 2015 through August 2nd.
