I have always considered myself as an "out of the box" thinker. But after visiting the Renwick Museum yesterday in Washington D.C. I am convinced I need to work on that a bit. Holy smokes.
My son Matt and I spent an afternoon visiting the exhibits at the Renwick and they were amazing. Fifteen foot trees built out of index cards. Millions of them. Traditional wallpaper created with bugs. Real bugs. Even ugly and creepy bugs. And trees created out of 500,000 jenga pieces. Seriously.
So here is what I am thinking. Now that I am painting abstract paintings I really need to step out of my comfort zone. In a really big way. I can no longer paint what's easy and comfortable. I need to really think more about my color palette, composition and inspiration. I want to push myself and really think outside of the box. But I promise I will still create paintings that I love. And it's not likely they will be made of bugs. Even real ones. No way.
