Here's the finished painting, and my entry for AEDM 17. I'm pleased with the composition and the colors. The curves and motion work as I'd hoped, and the trees lend some height and structure. I realized while drawing them the the trees are tulip poplars and cypress - I'm not sure how I know that or why it is, but it is. Ain't no arguing with the inner artist, or even much fruit in questioning. Listening is good, or getting out of the way.
Next painting is already in my head, though I haven't drawn it yet. It won't be a found painting - it sprang entire up in front of me, in our living room. And another set of random lines is already started on another square, for yet another painting. I prefer to have several going at once.
Tonight we went to the Graham (an old theater in the heart of Graham, NC - a real place) to the The Dark Knight. We was my two older children, who have already seen it twice, and myself. Dearest and youngest should not see it. I was as overwhelmed with the movie and Heath Ledger's performance as my daughter predicted.
