I’ve entered another show, The Heart Show, at Gerrard Art Space in Toronto. I decided to do a series of small paintings in acryl gouache (a type of water-based paint that is permanent when dry) for the show. After working on four 5″ x 7″ gesso boards, I completed two of them. I’m still working on the other two. A good thing that has come out of this is that I’ve decided to do a project on the chambers of the heart. I’ll keep you posted!
Here are the 2 paintings in the exhibit. The first I’ve called The Heart’s Map of Healing and the second, Waters of the Heart. When I placed the two paintings side by side, I was happy and surprised to see the patterns they form. They look like they were planned that way but were not. It’s very interesting to work on several pieces at once, going back and forth among them as I did here. They do become part of a larger whole.
