Project 313 – Post No. 256

I think . . . there’s something about this day . . . what is it? Oh, yeah.

I’m writing this ahead of time so I have no idea if I’ll do a proper Christmas Post. In case events keep me from it, HERE is one from a few years ago. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 256

Not sure if this is festive enough for the occasion . . . but it will have to do.

Not exactly holiday-themed but I like it . . . 

This is a good day to relax and watch . . . paint drying.

. . . paint drying . . .

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

You can read about Project 313 HERE.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    Another pink/blue delight! And this time with cherries . . . on top! Lovely.

    Mother looked at your doodle and said, “Anch’io sono capace di fare un dipinto simile!”, but she wouldn’t have the patience to watch it dry . . .

      I used this as an expiration (dang outocorrect) inspiration:

      I was hoping to get at least a third what the artist was charging for it:

        Most abstract art . . . I don’t get. And wouldn’t pay the above to get it.

        However, I did find an artist, Rolina van Vliet, who wrote several instructional books on the “Abstract Painting Method” that ACTUALLY makes sense!

        I read all four of her books and do understand the Method and it’s nowhere near “just throwing paint down” . . . it comprises of visual elements: primary ones like line, shape, size, color, etc. ; composition; and secondary elements like movement, design, balance, unity, variation, contrast, etc.

        The result is a conscious, deliberate, choice of elements that painted to “makes sense” . . . well, to me and those who know about it.

        I agree. . . the wife of a friend does a lot of abstract art and it looks much more than slopping paint on a canvas (which is more like what I did).

        But almost anything done with intent offers a look that is different and more purposeful than just slopping paint at random (unless you’re Pollock; then it’s all about slopping paint at random).

  2. PHOTO: Great texturing! And the cherries are cheery!
    CARTOON: Poor Mr. Boffo!
    DOODLE: I don’t like to watch paint dry…but you painted some pretty paint! I usually end up with paint on me l-o-n-g before the paint on the walls (the paper, the canvas, or other things) dry!
    HUGS!!! :-)

      Thanks, Carolyn. And, again, sorry. Another comment that slipped through what must have been large cracks.

      I agree; cheery cherries. You can almost see them sport a half smile of fruity condescension.

      If I were him, I’d turn around and find a more welcoming place . . . even if it was a tad warmer.

      When we were repainting our last house, I had a couple of sets of clothes used specifically for painting. They even got washed separately from the other clothes. Alas, they were not among the clothes that made the journey from Colorado to Hawaiʻi. Anyway, their main function was to keep my finger from ending up with dried paint on them. Meaning, any paint I got on my skin was immediately wiped on the shirt or pants I wore.

      . . . I probably could have sold them as abstract art.
