Every Painting Has a Story: Flying

This painting was a simple offering of what it is like, in the purest way possible, to be flying above the clouds. I tried not to stray into weird forms too much, but to stay safe with this one. It is very lyrical in that way.

For the process, it is the same: clear patches of pure pigment watercolor down, then building up with pigment mixed with white and pigment mixed, pastel, chalk, watercolor, watercolor pencil and lead pencil.

My sister-in-law Cathy came to visit us sweetly today and we went to the pumpkin man and to Lewis Orchards, for her to buy harvest goodies with which to make Thanksgiving desserts, to freeze for then. I’m already ready for them now! She is a great baker. It was awesome to see and Chipper loves her so very much as well it was a treat to see him so happy.

Still with the cold. Jason, too. But the weather has a nice, cold snap to it that brightens my mood very much.

    Another lovely piece. Your technique is unique Amy.

    Years ago I captrured a few screen-shots of Window Media Player visualizations, you know, the random patterns it makes while playing music. I always wanted to paint a couple of them but wasn’t sure I could get the effect. They actually looked rather similar to your work.

    Now reading about your technique and looking at your works I’m inspired to try my hand at one of those captured sceen-shots one of these days. πŸ™‚

    If it works out well I’ll dedicate it to You.

      Thank you! It is a hard-won technigue for sure, without training, just from studying the sky.

      That sounds intriguing — please do explore your art fully always — I know there are always all these projects we start and don’t finish, me, too — when you get to them, I would love to see! Thank you! How sweet! πŸ™‚
