Yes, there is something about January. There is not a lot of colour stimulation unless there is an orange sunrise or sunset to reflect upon the soft and relective white snow. That is excitement! But rare. So I need to reach into my internal store of colours, motions and shapes. I will choose my matrix, most often wood, and adhere some chunks of texture or objects that will relate to my seed of an idea.
I feel the need this January of 2019 to change some of what I am most familiar with. I need to force some challenging new ways of expressing paint, design, movement, colour and idea. It will be exciting and stimulating, the travel to new places. Repetition is defeating. I am feeling the internal stirring and the need to move on. Time will be the marker.
It would be a pleasure to hear from you, the reader, to hear your reaction to my thinking. Thanks,
