Like Icarus Ascending, 2010
I have been worrying about the bumble bee effect of the suit for several days now, ever since I painted it. This type of problem I simply cannot approach with my head, as much as I do try. I have the panting sitting on an easel at the bottom of my bed and I stare at it or I catch it in the corner of my eye 1000 times a day. I am waiting for it to become part of my unconsciousness...and finally today, in a massive day long free falling session, I suddenly decided to paint everything orange and I absolutely love it. I also turned the image on it's side and now it all works for me. The entire surface is wet and I can't go near it (I used my Milanese oils and they take forever) so next session I will only attempt to glaze the flesh a bit and finish the hair...but not tomorrow....tomorrow I seem to be hosting a party for 20 teens, God help me!!!
Give me a minute please to boil myself down to a single descriptive sentence...I am still working on this!
