After spending time wanting to figure out how to make my painting feel more alive, I decided I had to finish it before my performance this weekend. When I paint I always reach a point when I tell myself to stop looking at the object and just paint what 'feels' right. I had to stop trying to copy Georgia Okeeffe's style and use my instincts to make this work.
I will start another lily painting, smaller, for when I do my monologue, and this painting was my 'practice'. If I don't concentrate during my performance I wont care because the painting I do will be more a prop than an actual artwork.
