Finding Order in the Chaos

Finding Order in the Chaos
Originally uploaded by colormuse

Perhaps I am only hoping to find order within my chaos. By tomorrow afternoon when I am setting up my exhibit at the Taste of Stowe, art section. Hopefully I will refind those replacement parts for my Caravan 10x10 canopy. Our crude fix it glue and wire job did the trick for a one day show, but this one is 3 full days after the afternoon set up. I have one stone filled weight made, 3 more to go.

Last night I learned a new program to type out my resume and show list. I still have to write up the current artist statement. Every show I seem to write a new one. Perhaps I am getting closer to the truth of what I am doing.

This painting has been evolving through these last months. It is firming up, adding layers but staying very much the same. Perhaps that is the truth of this painting also. I have put on the eyes and wire and I'll take it out into the public to see what comments I draw. Unfortunately comments are hard to draw out...maybe after 3 days I will have picked up some hints on how to open up a conversation about my paintings or others' paintings as I will be a viewer and commenter also.

Hope this a is a good weekend for us all!

I bet the texture of this piece is quite strong...the space dividing with the circles is just great! Good luck with your show!

Thank Jeane and Mary Ann, yes texture is strong and so much better when the light can be shifted upon the surface. Some paintings find their way in a photo, others are harder to capture. This one, the later. Took time out of hectic push to enjoy the creative forces at work on "So You Think You Can Dance" with my son visiting. We were moved. That artist statement still hounds me.
