threadpainting

...is not something I normally get into but Frank Ze's Scribbler lends itself so nicely to it. I go there from time to time to sketch. Too many times I find that when I put an idea to paper it stays there never to be hatched. Putting ideas into a computer program seems more like dreaming about something than actually doing it. Makes you wonder how many pieces get wasted .

It's been my experience that when I've drawn an idea out on paper that it rarely gets implemented. I feel as if it's already been "done" and the excitement of exploring the process is pretty much over. It's that excitement that keeps me engaged. Any sketches are limited to placement of elements within a composition as well as the placement of values to use as a guide for my initial choices and maybe as a reminder if I get "lost" and the piece is not "feeling" right.
