I’ve been too serious and stressed out lately – as has been evident on this blog. So today, I let loose and decided to just paint. I was planning to do something else with this piece but this was what turned out.
I just let my mind do whatever it wanted and this was the piece I finished today as part of my Color Composition project. I’m actually really pleased with it. I think it looks almost like a cave painting.
It’s quite primitive in every sense of the word – not only in the content but also in the strokes I used as well as the state of mind I was in. It’s almost like my mind was in a child-like state when I produced this.
The whole time I was creating this, I kept giggling. My instructor looked over and said, “Jules, you sound like you’re having a lot of fun!” Yes, I was. It was probably the most fun I’ve had in a while now.
This piece definitely came from the emotive part of my brain and not the thinking one because I did not plan it out at all. I’m actually pretty proud of the piece!
