I recently completed an abstract landscape triptych in which, unintentionally, used a different mix to create the whites in the sky. When viewing the three panels together in real life, the white variation isn’t so obvious. But when my photographer setup the triptych for shooting, the result showed a different scene.
The error on my part was the mix in paints. I initially stressed out that the work wasn’t what I had intended but as time went on, I have come to embrace the difference in the whites, seeing it as the the one panel of three that calls for attention.
Much of art is about acceptance of it’s flaws, and in fact, an embracing of these flaws. Though there are pieces I’ve created where the flaws are outright flaws, it is important to me to let some time pass and re-assess these flaws before labeling them as failures.
There truly is beauty in some beasts.
Early in 2012, my husband and I sold our home in Los Angeles and moved to beautiful Aptos, California near Santa Cruz. The region is familiar to me, as I spent many summers on the central coast when I was growing up. Ensconced in our “cabin in the woods” that I remodeled to my liking, the opportunity has finally come for me to devote myself more fully to painting. I hope you will stay tuned, as I believe my best work is yet to come.
