Update on the move. We needed to be out of our old house June 30th and at the same day escrow was closed. After that we went back to Hubs job to finish it, and then travel to Texas. So hopefully in 2 more weekend we finally will have reached our destination. Am glad not all years are this intense!
When I started blogging I started with these artists blogs that only told about their interests, what they did, and what happened to their art. After a few weeks I realized how the “absence of the real person” felt limiting, so I started making connections with other kinds of blogs – nature blogs, people blogs, writing blogs, bird blogs, other specific interests blogs, and I still really like the diversity!
Once in a while, I talk about my own interest, and this is one of them. Maybe you remember (or not) that on my 10 x 17 feet painting the Wedding Feast (http://artnotes2016.wordpress.com) I came to realize after a while I needed to make a change. Below you can see why.
Am not for dramas, but this studio … just happened…?
From painting in my living room, I went to a 30 x 40 feet space studio. What you see is only one fourth. A half of the Celebrity Collection of 24 x 24 flowers, and the rest is a Series of the Matches Visions. Some are hiding on the side,
behind one of the three cabinets.
I painted on the bottom ten virgins: five wise, and five foolish ones. It is a parable that Jesus told about the wise and the foolish virgins. They were all people who believed in him
and waited for him to come back, as he had promised.
They knew no one knew exactly when. Only the Father of Jesus, the Creator of heaven and earth, did.
This parable is known as the Parable of the Ten Virgins. In following up on that, I painted ten.
After a while though, I realized that painting ten,
would give the wrong impression,
because the five foolish ones did not have enough oil in their lamps (meaning: not a close relationship with the son of God). That was the crux of the parable.
When they came back with more oil, they were
refused access to the Wedding feast.
Since this whole painting is about everyone who attended the wedding, I felt, I needed show the only five virgins who made it to the wedding.
It took me a while to gather enough courage to change, because so many things could go wrong: the style of my painting could have changed, the colors could turn out different since the original paint had already dried up, who should I put in their place, so there would not appear a “gap?“
Fortunately, the change was much easier than I anticipated.
5 wise virgins . “Deleted” two people and made the ones who were left into Mary, the mother of Jesus, Mary of Bethany, and Martha on the right.
