Reaching mother progress

Reaching mother progress

I’ve decided to arrange the mother series as a group. The one composed of squares is working well. Maybe they need to be a little closer to one another. I’m not sure about the group of 8″ x 10″s. I keep seeing a more vertical version of these. But I’m having some difficulty getting them to work. What is interesting me about these though is that they are taking on a face-like quality.

I always want to work large. My impulse is to try one of these at 36″ x 36″ or 36″ x 30.” I’m not following this impulse. They work really well as small, intimate, pieces. Arranging them as a group may be a way of having my cake and eating it.

As I’ve been making these I’ve been wondering what the hell am I doing. I’m making so many similar pieces. It feels uncomfortable. Like I’m wasting my time. A friend of mine said that’s a good place to be in when painting. Rather than forcing my will on what I want I am more receptive to what is happening in the process.
