More new work

Traveling Man
18″ x 24″
Oils
ready to hang/back stapled
Here’s the quote to go with it:
And I will show you something different
from either Your shadow at morning
striding behind you,
Or your shadow at evening
rising to meet you
I will show you fear
in a handful of dust.
T.S. Eliot (1888 – 1965)
***
Good Morning After eat all you can day.
We had a feast to beat all feasts.
Mate Man cooked all day and fed us to the falling over point, it was fantastic!
I hope you all had good times too.
This is the first of the three works I did over the coarse of three days.
I had to wait for the knife work to dry on this one so I could fix what I saw was wrong. I really like him now…and I am enjoying the map my mind is making for me to follow. When I paint my best work happens when i don’t have a plan, just a little idea and then i just relax, and play with what happens. (little i’s on purpose)
I like these three because they are just that, (scroll down one post for the other two) from my inner eye, no prompting, no reference pictures or muses, just me…doing what I wanted to do. Ahhhh, it’s like a day at the spa, or getting a thorn out after a while of painful squeezing. I like the spa metaphor better today.
Any way I have no clients today…and I would never go out into the Black Friday Greed-a-thon crap-ola that is going on today…so it’s just me and the kids playing board games and sneaking pie for breakfast.
Yum.
Have a good one all, and tell me what you think of this new work…I find it so helpful to see work through fresh eyes.
Grins and giggles,
Heather

    I’ve been crazy-busy lately and several blogs are backlogged (back-blogged?)…You seem to be using a different palette;a nice change from the dark brights. But hey! it’s all good!

    Continuing my musing on The Traveling Man…Newton’s apple…Adam hit on the head with the apple of the knowledge of good and evil… getting smacked in the head by such an apple each day keeps the doldrums away. Eve (of This Apple) proferred the fruit. The lovely girls in red witnessed it all. A fable in the works, Heather.
