Plotless?  Not exactly, but trying to keep an open mind as they develop.  So far they're are looking rather a lot like home-dec items...  so, maybe push them a bit more?  Or just accept them for what they are?  ....

The work here is fantastic. I really like the aesthetic as they are. However, what I REALLY like is the "title" plotless. It is an interesting conception for the creation of the work.

Hi Ross,

Thank you for the comment. When we connect via Skype I will tell you a bit about how these pieces - this piece? - came into being.

Interesting to have a peek into your thought process. I like these a lot.

Verna Vogel said...

Thank you P.D.!

I am really enjoying working this way, simple colour explorations with no expectation of where it will go...

It becomes nerve-wracking only when I think of an end product, which is actually difficult for me. Keeping an open mind and just enjoying the process is a very good mental exercise. Good for the heart and soul, too.
