Nothing like a really challenging painting to take your mind off your troubles, eh? ha ha Not sure what I'm thinking here. Working from 2 photos taken at Shaker Village of the dyed wool on display. Working on a half sheet of Killimanjaro 140# coldpress paper and working with the complements so the orange will go next to the blue, the red next to the green, and so on...that's my plan, anyway. Although I wouldn't hold my breath on this one being finished any time soon. It takes a while and I seem to "need" to draw in those strands with a small brush and then smoosh it all to get the rough look of wool that's a bit ragged!
The title = Stranded = came to be right away and Stevie Ray Vaughan's song, "Crossfire" began playing in my head as soon as the title came to me:
Caught in the crossfire.
I was stranded,
caught in the crossfire.
Turn it up...check it out...get off your behind and dance dance dance!!!
