Figure – day 76

 

Figure

 

There is a difference between painting figure and still life.

Objects are easier for painting, they are static.

In figure, there are moves, there is life that has to be captured,

otherwise it would be just an empty shell.

 

To be honest, I am scared when I paint figures. Yet, I dare to do it,

because that is one of the things that makes us different than the objects:

we dare.

Cupcake – day 73

 

Cupcake

 

This is how it begun:

My wife made cupcakes, so I thought it would be nice if I make large scale painting of 2 cupcakes.

Than I thought it would be good to start with small painting of cupcakes.

Than I thought: how can you paint a couple, if you can’t paint one?

 

The lesson I’ve learned: Don’t think. Thoughts are dangerous.

Ritual – day 72

 

Ritual

 

One of the explanations for ritual in Free Dictionary is:

A set of actions that are conducted routinely in the same manner“.

 

This is the object I use for my morning ritual.

Padlock – day 70

 

Padlock

 

While I was making this painting, I have realized

there is connection between the padlock and the human heart,

but I really don’t know how to explain it in a sentence.

Strawberry – day 69

 

Strawberry

 

I don’t think I’ve ever wrote a story about strawberry.

I am sure I haven’t paint one.

Lovers – day 68

 

Lovers

 

"The return of the Thin White Duke
Throwing darts in lovers eyes
Here are we, one magical moment
Such is the stuff from where
dreams are woven..."
