I was working on two paintings . . . spent a LOT of time on both . . and they didn't work for me. Nice to know this is just a part of creating . . the "error" . . the "mistake." Everything is working, lots of layers, then another addition on top and . . gong! . . wrong . . part of the ying/yang of life. It also enters into creating art, even though I would rather it not. Being "out of my comfort" zone means taking a little time away from it, a break from hours of intensity, to come back in balance.
This photograph was taken for my photography class (one photo of many). I played the piano for a number of years, and I have a beautiful Steinway grand (bought in the late 70's). Haven't played it in years, and I most likely will sell it at some point . . wonderful instrument. I found a couple of vintage trumpets a number of years ago, and this one rests on a ledge in my living room. I like how the horizontal/vertical/diagonal planes interact (blinds, shadows, and the trumpet).
