I've got some "regulars" that you can find in every painting I make... There are things I hide, things I count, and things that I purposefully layer, but the last couple of weeks I have introduced two new symbols in some paintings... I'm adding them to the "must include" list and it's really kind of fun. Can you spot the new additions?
Aside from them being "new" to me marks, they also signify a moment of growth. When I first started making marks in my paintings, I was obsessed...I was obsessed with making different marks in every painting, obsessed with making all of the marks I saw in everyone else's paintings...just overall mark-making-obsessed! The new Julie lets it flow.... they are genuine marks to me...they happen sub-consciously without thought...and I love it.
