Out of the box

more lines
Prayer #7 (Ink, watercolor on paper)

More colored boxes and lines. Starting to get tedious. I want to breeak out of my box mode. Even when I painted T-shirts I kept my wildy abstract paintings confined within boxes. I was never comfortable with anything freer or less confined.

My wife joked once that my boxes said a lot about me. That I was very creative and wild — but just within the confines of my little box.

Well, I’m working on some pieces for this local show that are not confined to a box. Well, except for one which *is* a box actually. But this one painting is big. Bigger than anything I’ve done so far. And it’s making me nervous.
