"The Trailer" by Jim Carpenter, Acrylic on Crescent Board, 20" x 11"
"Take the weavers. Before the invention in 1764 of the spinning jenny... weavers were generally self-employed and worked as and when they chose." Tom Hodgkinson
Remember Who Is In Charge!
Since I have committed to the 30 Day Challenge I do find myself wanting to produce a painting a day. My process really isn't one that produces a painting a day - and everything I've produced in the Challenge, save the Alaska painting, has begun with a start - and in some instances, a "start" that is pretty far along. I usually can manage to pull it out, but today I got busy on a "start" and it turned into something that I am quite intrigued with and I've decided not to try to finish it today.
I want to wait until tomorrow when the conditions are better. It's dark out now and I want to finish this in the daylight. So I am revolting against my boss, Jim Carpenter (aka Me,) who is saying that I really should finish it tonight otherwise I'm failing at my job. "Job!" Ha! This is not a job, Carp! This is my idle pleasure time.
As a compromise I am submitting 1/3 of the painting. Wild, huh. Well, you know, I am in charge. Like the weavers of yesteryear, I get to choose. So I am revealing - as a "trailer" - one part of the painting - the far right side. My hunch is that I won't be touching this portion of the painting tomorrow. But you never know.
I suppose I could make this a triptych. Then I'd be good till Friday!
Happy Rambling, folks!
