I recived this giant canvas awhile ago and finally decided to use it. While I was painting over it with white paint I stopped listening to music. It was a quite moment of just focusing on what’s right in front of me and my thoughts.
I have always been good at receiving criticism of my art works because I am always looking for ways to grow as an artist. However it became an issue for as soon as I finished a piece of art I immediately disconnect with it emotionally. I recently realized it's not always good to be disengaged with what I created. Many master artists were married to their art that by just looking at a painting you can make an intelligent guess when he/she painted it.
I decided to make this canvas different then what I have been doing. There is a difference between commercialized art works and personal art works...And more often I do commercial art that are meant to entertain my viewers, but this one is going to be different. This one is for myself and it is the beginning process of find myself in my creations.
Obviously God is someone I value greatly and I want to reflect that in my personal works. Not gonna lie, sometimes I forget I suppose to be a Christian, lol... That's another topic for another time.
I sat in front of a white canvas for a while, hesitating. “ What do I want to draw?” After some careful thinking and planing in my head I decided it is better to just vomit onto the canvas and see where it takes...
Then I moved the rough concept into photoshop and did a really rough draft for it.
Then finally I make it into the big painting. It has been an interesting process so far. And buck naked people are funny.
Obviously it is not done...I don't know how long it will take me to finish this giant painting but I pray I'll be patient with it instead of freaking out all the time. And most importantly, to learn thought the process instead of only wanting the result to look good.
