"Causing a Scene" Painting
March 4, 2012 — original post
Sometimes don't you just wish you could Cause A Scene?
This painting is among a mini-series of paintings I’ve done inspired by a mental exercise suggested from The Artist’s Way (by Julia Cameron), one of my favorite inspirational books. I wrote down 5 things that I felt I couldn’t do, and then I drew and painted them. I sometimes feel I want to just lose control of all “proper conduct” and make a scene, say what I really feel. It’s not always appropriate to do that whenever the mood strikes me, but this painting was the perfect place to channel my joys and frustrations.
