bemusing musings of a bewildered brush-wielder

margaret, day two

Here is the second day on the painting of my wife, Margaret.  I am very happy with the outcome of today’s work, and so is my wife.  I don’t want to say too much about the work, just yet.  Maybe it’s the sentiment of a superstitious painter, but I do feel that one has to be careful with the creative process- if I talk too much about the work, then it takes energy away from the actual painting.  Verbalizing can cause me to assume that the viewer has understood the visual language of the painting.  I have to let the painting be the complete statement.  But I can assure the reader that I will talk in depth about the painting at a later point, once it is finished.
