A Stone: One daily observation.
The day begins quietly, doesn’t know what it wants to be. Thunderstorm expected in the afternoon, until then it will be another hot day.
This is a very busy time for me, I have no time to “gather scattered words, to make sense of it all”. It isn’t a transition time, but perhaps a time for completing projects. All seems pressing right now, only wish I could get these things finished, so I could do what I want. I started an investigation several months ago, and just haven’t had enough time to really get into it, so it calls to me. Whispers my name, teases me and of course I want to respond. What to search in this playground I have created.
I am looking at still life, and asking the question. “How much information is needed?” And right now I cannot finish the question. How much information is needed, for what? To create an interesting painting? For the viewer to still recognize the painting as “still life?” I am a little bit lost right now, so you see how much I would like to stay with this, even if it is to finish my question. What am I asking?
Theme Thursday prompt: Tree
I’ve been looking
At trees all summer
I want to capture them
I want to keep them
I want to do a series
Of drawings of trees
Summer is almost gone
The series may be of “winter trees”
I continue to look at trees
