…with apologies to Monet is the full title of my newest painting.
I had so much fun at last month’s painting class that I decided to do it again. This time I decided to take what the teacher, Jason Erwin, was saying as more of a guide and less like a rule and just throw myself into the painting. For the landscape I made last month, I mostly just sat there waiting for his instructions and trying to carry it out to the letter instead of just going with it. His instructions are open-ended, I just wasn’t used to that.
I’m super proud of this painting and the touches that I put into it like using bits of red on the lily’s leaves and having one go off the canvas. I felt my creativity flow in a way that’s really different from knitting. I’d like to knit something inspired by this and I have an idea slowly forming. We’ll see if it ever gets off of the page and onto the needles.
