Congrats to Christina V. for winning a free painting in my drawing. Who says you can't get free stuff anymore?
On Saturday night I attended the Alzheimer's Association Art Auction, it's the biggest art weekend for me of the year, every year. After a long week; on Sunday night I fell asleep at 8:30 pm and slept for 10 straight hours. Awesome.
So, about this painting ... it still needed a little work and was in a corner of the studio (kind of forgotten to be honest) but on a whim late Saturday night I decided to finish it and bring it to the booth on Sunday.
One buyer looked at it and thought she liked it positioned horizontal - rather than vertical. It surprisingly worked and the name changed from Spring Awakening to Turntable. All I could think of was turning the tables or looking at something with a new perspective. Sometimes I beat myself up for being so abstract and loose but this time it magically worked.
Next time something doesn't feel complete, or I'm not seeing it quite right, I'm going to do a little 90 degree rotation and see what happens. If you see me out plein air painting and I suddenly start spinning around, you'll know why. Thanks "L" for your fresh perspective and purchase. It was certainly meant to be. Have a happy week everyone.
