|"Chunky Pear"||5 X 5 Oil on Hardboard|
Several days ago I posted a video lecture about creativity done by John Cleese. In it John describes how being creative is just playing. I thought about that while I was painting this pear. I told myself to just have fun and to go big or go home. And it was fun!
I find that I am torn between my love for dramatic realistic paintings and ones that are just fun and rich with expressive paintstrokes. And I tend to purchase paintings in the same vein. Some are light and playful and some more dramatic and realistic.
Here is the same pear I painted a few days ago.
So do any of you face the same conundrum?
I guess it has something to do with personality. I don't think anybody would describe my personality as playful. But I did find it FUN to paint today's pear in a playful way.
Maybe that is something I just need to allow myself to do more often....
Would love to hear your thoughts.
