In a bit of a creative flux and with the holidays it's hard to get into any serious work, BUT I just NEEDED to play and paint. There are all these theories about art and when I looked over the list here I thought the closest I came was self expression. However the possibility that someone just enjoys the process for itself often seems overlooked. There's this meditative quality that comes from a quiet repetative act. That's what I wanted,just to paint for the sake of it.
So here it is so far, a wee piece based on byzantine art. I needed to wear a filter mask when applying the liquid leaf gold paint. Once it's dry I'll sand it down to give it an aged look similar to what I did with this painting below.
