The Favored One

I shouldn't pick favorites; it's like children and pets I suppose. But I mentioned this piece a couple posts back. The one I did when I was sick and my brain was too tired to kick in and perform it's normal edit function.....I've been thinking about that so much - how to turn off that internal voice that second guesses and judges every move I make. I haven't come up with an answer as of yet, am going to have to keep thinking about it I suppose.

Anyhoo, this is the piece. It is 40" x 40" acrylic, collage, pastel & ink on canvas, framed. It's untitled, but I've taken to calling it "the favored one."

One final reminder (yeah, I'm pimping myself again) solo show opens tomorrow, that's Saturday, 3/07 at PHD Gallery, 2300 Cherokee Street in St. Louis from 6-10pm. Click on the link for other hours. And stay tuned for a video of the opening.


  1. I know what you are talking about, it's not that easy to get this 'just-follow-the-flow-and-not-too-much-thinking-creating'. I learned to let go in a further education Expressive Painting and it works pretty good creating a Collage too. It's hard to explain how it works but letting go of all expectations and how the collage should look like and just see what's coming what colors you would like to paint with, which elements you would like to integrate and follow the ideas coming one after another,just play with elements and colors might help.It's a wonderful experience just to let go and I hope you find a way to discover and enjoy it again.
    Also wishing you a great start for your show!!!! That it is going to be a great success and a lot of poeple will show up! Smiles, Anke ;)

  2. ooooooooh, love this piece you have created!

    Best wishes for the show - I'm sending good thoughts across the way :)

  3. Have a fantastic show tonight, MBS! Can't wait to hear all about your night at the 'ball,' so to speak. ENJOY!
