AND THE DANCE GOES ON! ARABESQUE REVISITED, AGAIN!

Lovingly captioned "Squawk" by a couple of the artists.

Alice Stockton’s SINGING BIRD (also lovingly captioned “Squawk” by a couple of the artists.)

As the day progressed, so did the artwork. From the very first, it was obvious “Color” was the topic of the day.

At this point, no one knew where this day was headed. Very few pieces at the end had any resemblance to the beginning. This one, especially, morphed into something entirely different. I had in mind a black, beige and red painting of some sort. But….

I think I had already begun to feel this wasn’t working, so I painted over it, turning everything to gray.

Surprisingly, spirit figures began to appear:

And then, as the music mellowed, so did the mood of the painting. That does happen when one is finally in that place where intuitive painting begins.

I’m still not sure where this painting is going, but each time I look at it, I see something new. Is it finished? Maybe not. I haven’t signed it yet! I do feel it has a message, but the whole has not been revealed – to me, at least! I’m calling it CIRCLE OF LIFE. Who knows, it may reappear as something entirely different – that’s part of the joy of being a painter – you can hardly wait to see what you’re going to do next!

As the day ended, we had several colorful pieces of art – and we each vowed to do this again – it was indeed a joyful day!
