Shut Up and Paint!

Click on this image to read todays blog post. (Please note that my Moleskin sketchbook doesn't come with spell check.)

Oh! I also discovered Magnesium Blue Hue (by Daniel Smith) today... Fell in love. Mixed with lemon yellow and alizarin crimson make for a million shades of juicy grays and punchy darks! This fantastic palette will be in my next painting...

I too graduated from SCAD and now live and paint in the Seattle area!

Just found your blog through Daniel Smith's Twitter feed. Beautiful work!

Great post, very recognizable. I too should just paint, not think too much, not putting things off, and learn from my mistakes. I keep blundering into the same trap time and time again.

I should also start painting again, something I haven't done in ages.

Cheers,
Arco

Hey, the way it feels sometimes, I think your spelling (torcherous) may actually be rather appropriate. :) Looking forward to seeing what the new color inspires.

Arco~ we share the same pit falls... but I think they make us stronger and make us who we are for sure! Pick up your brush again - you will smile inside!

Jennifer Phillips said...

Hi Walker! Yeah, my spelling sucks... and makes for a good chuckle on occasion. Good to hear from you!

Great post Jen. Not being an expert I can only say that I think at least half of painting (or drawing, or sculpting, or designing...) is really just problem solving. My personal experience is that fun is an added bonus to what can be a very difficult and sometimes frustrating process. Especially when you get past the initial stages of exploration and you really start trying to say something with the things you make. I think your work speaks profoundly beyond simple exploration. Keep it up.

Also, finger condoms...hehe.

Jennifer Phillips said...

Brian, your comment was well put. I good reminder indeed.

One of my favorite moments I remember was that night we stayed at the store and played with all those supplies, made tons of small abstract pieces, and experimented! It is a fond memory for me because of the feeling it gave me to just PLAY with out fear of failure.

I need to do that more.

Thanks for your kind words...

Love your work! I wanted to ask you, what are you wearing over your fingers? looks like a rubber glove only for your finger, did you buy them that way or make them yourself?

Hi Melissa!

Thank you for your interest in my work... the little protectors I am wearing are called finger cots. I bought them at Daniel Smith Artist Materials. Here is the link: http://www.danielsmith.com/ItemSearch--search-finger-cots--srcin-1

BTW I too love your work! I am a fan and will be following your blog from now on. Thanks for visiting and leaving me your comments!
