What's on my easel?

Bones of the Earth, August 29, 2009, acrylic monotype on canvas board with sumi paper collage, 20 x 16,

Although I scribbled my signature on it yesterday just say to myself "It's done", I'm not completely satisfied with it...don't get me wrong, I like it...OH I HAD SO MUCH FUN...you betchya, I had fun...I love the colors, I love the texture, but I think I got into trouble with the orderliness of my shapes...the structure...if only it were more higgledy-piggledy...well, I'll have to think about what I might do next to make it right...

You and I seem to have the same issue with our work--- this sort of order and structure creeps in when we want looseness and 'higgly-piggly". I have also been working on a painting that I am trying to loosen up on.
But I do like yours and love the textures and subdued colors.

Your work is beautiful, spare and ephemeral. It reminds me of the seasons we are moving into.

I seem to love it. You have so much texture and softness. Yet strong..
