Without Focus

Cynthia Maniglia - journal page.jpgPainting or drawing without focus … without a clear intention … without expectations or ideas. Just seeing where the paint and pen take me. That’s what I’ve been doing lately. It can be ultra frustrating but I try to keep at it and see what I can get out of the exercise. Here, too many colors and not enough clarity … but I say OK. It’s imaginary. I was surprised to find the orange and purple bougainvilleas that I just placed in the garden cropped up here, unintentionally. And I went with that. Maybe a little too far.

  2. It is lively, colorful, yes a bit messy but I think it is a beautiful feeling of being immersed in flowers and to me it makes it up close and personal. Pushing the boundaries is a very good exercise and opens up all kinds of creativity, I say go for it!

  3. You make me think of that stuff.

    “I gazed at my drawing, wondering what the stuff put into it. I wanted to draw something special but I didn’t have any concept for it.

    I drew some lines for getting inspiration. Then, I drew, drew, drew, line1, line2, line3, line4, and so on. I was still no any concept for it, but I had already finished my drawing, and it’s not bad. ( Is it also like life? Sometimes you don’t know how to do with it, but you must do something for it. Time will pass. )

    These lines were irregular, messy, but I felt cozy with it. I didn’t know what it is, what the meaning of it, so what? I didn’t need to know it, I liked it, that’s all.”

    Anyway, you have a nice try. keep going on!
