07/09/2005: "Approaching strangers...Starting over"
This morning I met with a writer friend for coffee and it was great, talking about the creative process...very inspirational. However, sitting directly behing my friend was the most incredible looking guy and I couldn't stop watching him. It was distracting because I wanted to ask him if I could paint or photograph him in the *worst* way; he had a very unusal look: big nose, really white skin, deep set blue/green eyes and dark hair. I thought it would be weird to approach him but I've seen him around before and next time I think I'll have to ask. The worst that can happen is he'll say "no thanks freak"...
Anyway, I came home feeling inspired to paint and I decided to work on the Trio painting, as it is the furthest away from being finished. The thing is, i like the mountain, the cloud, the trees, and the foreground, but I don't like the figures and now that I don't have to focus on just the music theme, I'm thinking of painting over the 3 small figures with one larger one. I think it will work better with the other paintings in the show as well as work better as a painting. It just bums me out because i've spent sooooo much time working on those damn figures trying to get them to work. I guess it's better to start over than to force it. right?
