New nap time strategy for the kids, new painting exploration for me. Scary on all counts.
So I started playing with big shapes and the colors that I normally gravitate toward. Then I started working on the next stage. I am desperately trying to just play around and not think of coming up with anything in particular. It is SO HARD!!! I am not used to working this way, but the awkwardness is good. I’m at a stage where I’m getting kind of stuck, and nap time is nearing an end, so I’m going to quit right here. Hopefully I will come back to this.
UPDATE: Finally let go of trying to get something perfect and went with a few ideas that started popping into my head. Lo and behold, this is what happened:
A window box with a leaky hose! Who knew? I definitely need to do A LOT more of this kind of exercise. The leaky hose idea actually came about because I dripped some paint on the paper by accident. I decided to follow the happy accident, and everything else followed. Not easily, mind you, but it followed.
