DAILY PAINTING: "be-YOU-t-ful" 10-30-15 The last "stick drawing" in this series, thank God! I don't know if I'll be called upon to use this technique again (I hope not, but I kept the stick, just in case). Let's just hope I don't decide that this is my new style! Ugh!
Anyway, all three drawings are now transferred to the canvases, so the next thing I'll have to address is how to work the text elements ("Je suis beau" etc.) into the three compositions. I've already decided to limit one message per canvas, done in a variety of languages, type faces and sizes.
I've used text before in my work (most recently in "Sorry, Wrong Number), but also in "Peace" in which I wrote the word "peace" in various languages, and the words formed a circle (to represent the world, of course), with an image of a dove in the center.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
