During my time with the Art For Soul Critique group in Albuquerque, I selected a couple of my works-in-progress to work on. I remembered to take a few photos while I was working on the watermedia/collage piece which developed into an expression about geraniums and windows, which it seems are becoming symbols for my explorations of “Looking in-looking out:
This”start” has several layers of paint with collage papers glued to the surface. A cruciform composition is beginning to develop.
Decisions have been made about developing the upper white collage piece into a peaked shape, reds are shaped into geranium blooms and upper right is developing into geranium leaf shapes.
The white collage paper on the lower right inspired me to think in terms of three windows, balancing out the idea of three geraniums. Three of anything beautiful in a composition reminds me of the Holy Trinity. I accented the little reds in the lower windows, and suggested divisions within the window spaces. I like the whites; they suggest a glowing light inside, maybe also reflections. I think it is finished; what shall I name it?
