ART S.O.S.-Send Help

Good day everyone,
I have two paintings that are giving me fits. Both are UNfinished, so hold onto your knickers there for a minute… I can not decide if I should scrap them both or finish them, I have lost my way. So, I thought what the heck, I’ll show them to my valuable readers and friends and get some second thoughts on them. So, are you ready to look at some art that is not finished and give me your thoughts on them? I hope so, because that’s what we are doing today…on with the almost done art show. 🙂
1st up is a small study I am doing on canvas board, in oils…it is a new thing I am trying out…drawn collage. I look at lots of pictures of stuff, gather up a bunch of images that I like looking at together, and them draw those unrelated images down and then paint it in and together. I don’t know what else to do with this one, I feel that the images are not coming together like I thought they would and now I am stuck. I don’t know if I should even bother with finishing it, because I can’t come up with an understanding of the story it’s trying to tell me. BTW, I am a process painter, it all happens without too much direction from me, I let the work take the lead. Just FYI… that’s why I can get lost in my own work and not know what to do, because I have no plan most of the time…fun right? :)Anyway… It’s titled: “Her name was Lilly” Tell me what you think, really I mean it…here you go…

 Well? What do you think?

2nd painting is something I have been working on for at least three months. I got to this point in the painting, and have not finished it. I am stuck on if anyone even wants to see this work or not, is it worth finishing, is it too far out in left field, is it insulting too many or not enough? Is it even any good? I don’t know, let’s take a look shall we and you tell me…it’s called: “What if Jesus was a Girl?” Oils on canvas, 36″ x 24″

So there it is…my plead for creative help for my paintings that I have been working on. I hate getting stuck, it happens, it’s part of the whole process, I know…but I still hate it. So, if you’ve got something to share, please for the love of all that is Holy, share.

I have thick skin so don’t worry about hurting my feelings, otherwise I wouldn’t put it out in the world like this, right? I would show them to friends and family and go that route…I want this feedback from those who know me and those that don’t. Now don’t go being an ass, I’ll boot you for being outrageous or extra mean. So, by all means…look, think and discuss…it’s all good.

It’s been a busy week so far, with my intuitive coaching picking up new clients left and right. I am working my fanny off…it’s all good, I like my job, but I still need to paint every single day. Art is my life, intuitive coaching is a real talent, and it helps people, makes money for my family and that all makes me feel good, but… it’s not art. Art makes me feel alive!!!! So, it’s good to pay the bills, but I want to pay the Universe for gifting me with this talent that inspires the fires of passion to burn inside of me. Ahhh the life of a painter…it’s sooo glam yes? *smirks*

Hope everyone is fit and fine. Love to all.
