Using up the blue on my palette and conjuring Edward Gorey
It is raining today. I still had a pile of blue on my palette from the last time I painted and I had an idea for a "waiting in the rain" image--I just dashed it out as a rough idea. I didn't really intend for it to look so completely despondent...but sometimes things happen that I almost don't have any control over. In the end it reminded me of a Edward Gorey illustration...just not as whimsical. The umbrella looks like a bat and the blue with no relief (like another color) certainly looks ...so lonely! I doubt that I'll take the idea any further..but there is no denying that it is kind of interesting.... just as it is!
