I have my focus back.
I haven't be sluffing off. I do have some work that still needs to be seen with my glasses on before I share it. However, taking a few moments to myself has allowed me to approach my large painting with more clarity. Each time I do, I have attempted to create Life on each flat surface. It may not be a living, breathing surface, yet it is tangible and real. So rather than create flatness, I am applying this creamy luscious substance, in a variety of shades, that will allow the viewer to move in and around the forms that I see.
I no longer see it as a still life. It is now a landscape that I have created. I turn on the light, but then I tweak the dimmer a bit. I turn off the light, and I wait until I can see the form in the dark. I understand now that this is so important, before any of the ornamentation is applied.
I am close, but I still have a few more trips to take. Hope you will be along for the ride.
