making marks

stack of white paper, stark white canvases,  plentiful tubes of luscious colour, pastels, charcoal, pencils, ink.  The weekend has arrived, my art studio has been professionally cleaned and organised by a friend  and I am about to make some marks on all this whiteness !!

Looking at the images surrounding me, the marks I have made on paper, board, canvas and card have all been curves, swirling, entwined, marks, curvaceous  languorous limbs, swirling fecund growth with swelling fruitage, usually heavily paint laden, deep grooves made on the paper with my pencils, there is a will,  a strong will that controls not on the visual element but in the way the medium is applied.

Today will I produce something similar, without a doubt it will be “rounded and abundant” ,  this is how I think, this is how I am and this is  how I express myself.  Maybe I could try something different, or perhaps could say that I do try to make marks in more geometric, angled shapes, but it doesn’t come easy, I have to think about it and when I think about painting or what I am to do, its then that a blockage restricts  my flow and nothing comes out !!!

One more sip of coffee, perhaps sitting in the sunshine, then lets see what happens
