I've been working on this large-ish roses bouquet painting. I'm kind of liking the ambiguity in the unresolved parts, so I'm leaving it alone for now. I'm at the point when I cant really see it anymore anyway. I just noticed the photo is showing some glare. I will have to get a better picture for my files, but this will do for this post.
While I've been painting today I started listening to the audio book by Oscar Wilde, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'. I've not listened to much by Oscar Wilde before. I can see why he's considered a 'classics' writer. Very overflowing literary style, but the kind of sentences that make you want to stop the tape and conjure up the 'image' described in words before you go on to listen to the next bit. So far I'm enjoying it...it's about an artist and his portrait painting. I really love books about artists. I'm also reading a book from the library titled: "I've Always Loved You" by Robin Oliveira, hint: it's also about artists! surprise! My friend Barbara Muir put me on to that one because she wrote about it in her blog. Thank you Barbara!
