Does a phrase or expression ever send you off into a reverie where you focus on how you could portray those words? I frequently am attracted by a phrase that seems to have special meaning in my life. My current obsession is “having the blues”. I am not in a dark place but I am aware that it would be easy for me to have the blues. To be sad and melancholy. To be thinking about what was. With my latest painting I took the phrase Got the Blues and integrated ropes that binds us and nets that catch us. I used some of my favorite colors because I remain optimistic.
This is done on a quarter sheet of my current favorite, Prestige, watercolor paper and did you notice I integrated a few of my favorite circles? Just for fun!
