eye candy friday!


So this one is shaping up to be about 30"x30" and the individual elements worked themselves out to be scaled the same as the four previous, smaller pieces. This is only the first layer of course and I'm seeing one or two things I want to change before I start basting.







And speaking of grand scale eye candy, check out the amazing works of   I Wayan Sudarsana Yansen.. here and here where you can get an idea of how big his work is.


Recently I was fussing with myself about wanting to make cloth look like paint and here is an artist who has made paint look like cloth at it's most glorious - in motion on the wind or in water or maybe worn by a dancer.

like little photographs of your time and space

it's really more basic than that. each piece has to relate/vibrate with it's immediate neighbors in shape, tone and color. i'm quite zoned out when composing.

love the mosaic-glass feel of your WIP. very nice. I wonder (as someone who talks/thinks about using cloth as paint) what would happen if we just completely gave up that idea.

pardon my bit of arrogance, but I always assume painters are trying to do what we do with cloth.
