Birth (2015)

17 Sep


This painting just came to life.  Too big for my scanner and so the photo is a little darker than I hoped but wanted to share this piece.  I wrestled with it for a while to determine whether I wanted to play with adding some ink lines or painted lines.  I determined that I didn’t want to because the painting didn’t need it.  Arriving at that decision is always a little challenging, but once I decide I can’t imagine the painting any other way.

    I like the simplicity of it and the large scale of the lines and shapes. I think you were right not to add more – it would be a case of distraction from the main image, then, I think. I like this a lot.

      Claudia, thank you for your helpful comment. I like what you said about the simplicity and scale of this piece. I agree about the lines potentially distracting. So grateful for your feedback.
