a friend of mine had suggested this technique to me about a week ago: working FLUIDLY. (essentially creating small pools of water on your paper and using watercolor pencils allowing the color to bleed at will).
so at first, i can honestly say i HATED it. REALLY. just the idea of NOT being in control of my own Creation ignited this Rage deep down inside (wondering what that says about me, hehe). in addition to the fact that when i work, i work fast and furious so much of the time. NOT AN OPTION with this process. you are at the complete mercy of the elements. ughhhhhhhh
so after my first attempt, i was ready to say, been there, done that, NOT interested. BUT.....(and this pains me to admit) this technique began HAUNTING me...calling me from one of those dark corners of my Being. and yes i ignored it for awhile, but we all know that was only gonna last so long.
finally, i decided the only way to SHUT THOSE voices up inside was to walk head first into yet another UNKNOWN part of my Self via this technique. ya following me?
so after numerous attempts i am happy to share i FINALLY created something i am willing to share. IN FACT, share HERE under THIS forum (i am not a big fan of others critiquing my work, hehe).
so, i give you all 'lionESS" and honestly look forward to seeing what you all think. to me this piece is Finished and is COMPLETELY different from anything i have done to date.
thanks Tammy!!! xo
i LOVE that story!!! (i also love Picasso) hehe
