It's no secret that I definitely lean more strongly to the right side of my brain, but apparently I am also fairly heavily left-brained. This seems like a recipe for success as I am quite organized, but I often wish that I could be fully right-brained so that I wouldn't constantly be thinking and re-thinking everything. The pieces I've begun working on are extremely intuitive, quite a departure for me, which gives the left side of my brain a little panic attacks. I'm relying on my intuition in full as I add texture and colour to my canvas and then as well when I complete the final piece. No pre-sketching, no drawing on the canvas. Which means that each piece needs to percolate before I can bring myself to move forward. So, the crow I spoke of the other day is not at all in existence and instead there are a new set of branches appearing. I have to say that I'm loving this process. To me it speaks even more to baring my soul than my previous work, allowing the gentle 'whispers' of God be my guide. These days I've begun watching 'Work of Art: The Next Great Artist' and it brings back memories of college - especially all the emotion and drama :) There is to be a marathon of shows this Saturday so I've got them ready to record. I can't to see the creativity as it unfolds - just glad that I don't have those tight parameters when I'm working.
