the smallest thing

I was working in the studio the other day and this little thing caught my eye. That little thing became a whole painting. Even though I usually start from something bigger than a little fluff and a slight curve of a lip, It is not necessarily better to start more prepared. A little fluff and a shadow became copper girl and I really love her. In fact she might be my favorite of the whole show.

There was this dictionary word for today which was

Autoschediastical aw-toh-SKEE-dee-az-tik-uhl, adjective:  Something improvised or extemporized.

When paintings get born from this beginning then it is usually the best work you ever do. Plan Plan Plan.  Then don’t plan and just go.
