KarPaiTwenMo: Week Four

KarPaiTwenMo: Week Three: Atmosphere by Karen Gadient

Color is the fruit of life. — Guillaume Apollinaire

Between my computer having problems and my own creative indecisiveness, artwork in the final stretch of November has been a slow process. I paint one thing, hate it, paint another, like it that day, hate it the next, and try again.

With NaNoWriMo, no one has to read your novel at the end of the month. With this painting thing, I’m all too aware I’ll be sharing. I promised I would. So—I overthink and sigh and meh. Now that time is running out, I’m starting to accept that some things might have to be ‘good enough’ and that’s okay.

I’ve discovered a bit about what I like to paint and how much I love vibrant color. Too much, probably. But hey—color makes me happy. More in a few days!

  1. such a blessing
    having two good eyes to see
    beautiful vibrant colors,
    offered

  2. Well, I like it. Keep it up! Nothing to lose and everything to gain!

  3. I love your vibrant colours! Nearly there! :-)

  4. This has to be one of my favourites out of the last few. I think its the illusion of complexity balanced with those broad sweeps that really bring it out for me. I was thinking it looked like a bush in the background, but then my mind when coral, and I think that’s what I like about it. I see lots of things. Nice job as usual :P Keep it up!

  5. So much emotion in that painting. Thank you for sharing your process.

  6. This one might be my favorite. It’s gorgeous!

  7. Colour makes me happy too, and this is just that, bursting full of colour! :) I think I’d be the same with art if I was putting mine up on the internet, I’d be far more critical than I would over writing, not sure why. Maybe it’s that thing of judging by looks – which is bad really, because I don’t believe I do that in life generally. I suppose art could be quite revealing about our inner character. Or maybe I’m over analysing, over-thinking. Ah – back to that again! :D

    You could always get someone else to look at them, and let them decide if you are going to submit a piece of art? Like having an art agent! ;)

      Oh, you’re so right. There’s a lot of psychology behind art and writing. Color and words… and how people respond to them. Now you’re going to get me thinking! :D

  8. Love the paint daubs approach in Photoshop–you’ve taken it to a whole new level.

  9. I love the colors, shapes, lines…all of it! Thank you.
