Wild and Loose
Todays insignificant inquire is about painting styles and personalties. My painting style is wild, loose, and thick. There is a method to my madness. But you have to look for it. Lou once said that judging from my painting style, one would think that I had no organization in my life. But I am organized. I will tell you something embarrassing about me. Every article of clothing in my closet is separated into categorizes. For example my shirts are separated into long sleeves, short sleeves, and button -up. Within each section the shirts are organized by color according to the spectrum. OCD, I know. I am not like that in every part of my life. Just somethings. Back to painting styles. My painting style is wild and thick. That poses the question, am I wild? Well, um....... I don't know. I use a lot of paint. I love texture in paintings. I also love color. I do not plan every painting. I get a general idea and go for it. I am sometimes a planner in life and sometimes I just go for it. But my friend A on the other hand is a very strategic planner when she paints. She draws every thing out. It helps her see where she is going with the painting. She is like that in life too. She works well in last minute situations. My friend K is a precise painter. In life she is that way also. Both A and K are great painters and great women. In this case their painting style reflects their personality. In my case I am not so sure. S and I have similar painting style but different personalities. Our personalties can sometimes be similar. But mostly we are different. S is a wild and free painter. She is a great artist and woman too. I believe that in some aspects of your life you painting style reflects your personality. What do you think? Do painting styles reflect personalities?
