Apart from my brush with fibre, weaving my first tapestry, I have been taking a break from art. Sometimes life just overtakes the space carved out for creating and painting. I have also had a review and clear out of my older artwork. Actually slashed and binned about twenty paintings. Coinciding with the vernal equinox one could call it spring cleaning.
It isn't the first time I have 'cleared the decks' to move forward. Perhaps after I have painted (and possibly slashed) a few hundred paintings I will have something to say. Each canvas/surface is a learning process. I did save one or two canvasses suitable to be painted over and reused/recycled.
I found this unfinished painting of an owl sitting on my easel. I am thinking of finishing this one. The eye already has character and I like the curve of the beak.
