Well, I have started a few small paintings about A4 size. I use acrylics as I am rather impatient and want things to happen quickly. When I am working well, the images can come quite easily and very fast. I like to get in that zone. Attached is the best of the works I have produced this week.
This painting is of a Spanish girl and her chihuahua. Velazquez ‘Las Meninas ‘ has been an influence on some of the recent small works I have been making. I love that painting…there is just so much happening.
I am currently reading ‘The Kachina and the Cross’ , which focuses on ‘the interaction of Spaniards and native peoples in New Mexico’. Written by Carroll L. Riley, it is a very interesting book, but I will have to get back to my Aussie resources soon. C x
