Below is an extract from a post in August last year. When I set eyes on Ailsa’s challenge this week I knew where I was going with today’s post. You see… the dreaded canvas I speak about has come out of hiding. I’ve been working on it for more than a month. Slowly but surely the paint is finding it’s pattern on the canvas.
I’ll begin today by divulging a secret… no, it’s nothing earth shattering. Actually, to many, it’s not even a secret. I have, in the past, been known to slap paint on the odd canvas, occasionally with mild success. I’ve not attempted anything remotely artistically connected with a piece of paper or canvas for quite some time but the other day I was walking past the sale bins in the local store when a large canvas stopped me in my tracks and begged to be taken home.
Yes, I bowed to the demands and now the canvas has a new home. However, now it’s staring at me every time I walk in or out of our bedroom. It’s still wrapped in it’s plastic coat but I’m sure it’s mocking me… whispering something along these lines…
“Chicken… you can’t tame me! You’re clueless!! Chicken!!”
So… thanks to Ailsa’s challenge this week… I now have an excuse to show you the progress. Paint… it’s such an important part of life… primary colours included!
PS – This “painting” is inspired by Piet Mondrian… he’s art has had a massive effect on how I look at lines… in life and art.
PSS – This bit of paint on canvas is not complete… maybe I’ll get it done before Christmas… maybe I won’t!
