SQUARE.


The theme for "Inspire Me Thursday" this week is "square"...coincidentally, squares are all around me. The vast majority of my recent paintings, for the past couple of years, have all been square. Most of them 12x12. I really love this size and I am definitely not done with it yet. The three "squares" above are three thick frames in my dining room that normally hold three of these paintings but, I took them out last weekend to wire them up for an upcoming art fest and the sad empty frames were just sitting there. The theme this week inspired me to temporarily dec these out... even if it's just a little while, it was looking pretty sad. So, I used some scraps from some artworks that my husband, daughter and I have been working on this week (and some of my daughters plastic animals). I wonder how long until she notices and if I have to give 'em back?
I also just realized that you don't have to really wait until THURSDAY to post for IMT! I still wonder how alot of people seem to get their homework done so early!!!

There is something about the starkness of these empty frames that is appealing to me...perhaps it is the plastic animals!! LOL...Good luck at the upcoming art fest!
