my little wire ladder
steel & copper wire, appx. 8-10 cm across,
work in progress/study sketch
So i've been slowly, very slowly working on this ladder for this June letters painting that is no longer about the June letters:
[detail, no June letters]
A few layers before this (that had been miserably wiped off, layers of orchres, reds, corals), it had these black letters on it:
And right before that was this:
So really, i have come back to a blank canvas again, just a few shades darker:
Well, not totally blank, as i do see an image of a ladder on it. Hopefully, it will take me somewhere to completion...
Coincidently, the last couple of days, i've been walking on these trail steps made out of wooden planks that look like little ladders. They are scattered around on various trails in the woods and for some reason, it gives me such a thrill to walk on them. That is a good sign, no? Painting is still so new and such a struggle for me, so i could use all the good signs out there for it.
