DAY 29: Waft

“Waft” (6″x9″ watercolour) by R.L. Gibson

It is Day 29 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge; today’s painting is “Waft” (watercolour, 6″x9″).  I am on the road today driving from Pennsylvania to an art opening in New York.  All this time in the car has left me with a lot time to think.  I’ve done a lot of over sharing during this 30-Day Challenge.  I really took this challenge to force me to show my painting to a world that only knows me for xerography & digital illustration.  I didn’t expect to react quite the way I have.  On Day 27, I wrote of being sodden with overwhelming possibility.  Today I feel lighter.  The possibility feel lighter, allowing me waft through instead of sinking under the weight.  It is interesting how subtle the difference in feeling is and how equally subtle the difference between the work is on these two days.

As a xerographist, my work tends to be, almost exclusively, representational.  The 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge offers me an opportunity to revisit abstract painting as an alternate voice. 

How do I end the challenge?  Day 30 is upon us.
