Painting Notes

Grey, the colour of fear.
A lighter mid-grey. Numb.
Fear as a wall. A blockade. Barrier.
Behind which lies the gold, the light.
The quiet voice – listen.

Observations

Plenty still to do with these.

Add gloss and matt mediums to the top work. Perhaps thicker paint at some point—also small black bits. I like the energy of the work, the dynamism.

Painting the square work feels like constructing a wall. More layers to add, and perhaps sand back.

The act of making reveals insights into the nature of fear.

Also, find, make, or purchase more surfaces. A potential series of work.
