Day 134 - At the housewarming party
9 x 12 inches, acrylics on paper
(If I am very lucky) there is a moment in the making of a painting that suddenly
and unexpectedly everything relates to everything else like instruments in an orchestra.
Sometimes it's just two shapes, or three shapes, and it's just so lovely and then you (I)
put down a tiny shape next to them and the magic 's all gone. Like a soap-bubble bursting.
And sometimes if you are very clever you just drop your brushes, and rush to clean your palette before you get an urge to mess it all up again.
