Sunday Afternoon Musings

A complete amateur, but I persist in putting paint on canvas; it soothes my soul almost as much as going out to take photos. Today, as I stare at this piece I’m working on, I am unable to take my eyes off of her. Not because I think it’s a particularly incredible work of art, but because I did not intend to paint a face; I’ve never painted a face, the best I can do in that department is a stick figure with a round circle head and dots for eyes, a slash for a mouth, and an upside down V for a nose (and that’s on a good day). I did not intend to paint an angel, but only copy one wing that broke off of a plaster angel statue I have owned for years

Before I knew it I had painted both wings with a space in the middle of the canvas, and I would walk by the canvas, look at it and wait to be told what to do next, because that’s how it seems to work for me in all creative efforts I pursue. I wait, and something guides me to the next step. I really can’t describe how this works. But this afternoon it hit me, as I looked at what has shown up on the canvas seemingly of its own volition. I believe this is my muse; there is a ways to go on this before I think it might be completed. A nose job for sure.

    A beautiful muse you have created, Angeline. You have an impressive artistic side, it is something special you have in terms of creativity, you either create beauty in something you paint on canvas or with an image from your camera; and the reward if for you and us, it soothes the soul. Wishing you well during this strange year, take care ~

      I’ve just read this, five days later, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart, Randall. It seems in the strangeness of this year my muse pushes me to create what I can. Take care. Be safe.
