Decorations for my daughters graduation dance.
I have been too busy messing around with set paintings and graduation dance decorations to do any "serious painting" these last two weeks. It's been fun to work big again, especially for an assignment that has very little "fine art" expectations. All of these were done as fast as possible, without time for hesitation, without time to shade or even mix extra colors. It is fun also to be thinking in terms of decoration vs. focusing on reproducing a realistic reproduction from life. Probably ideas I need to spend more time with. Years back I had pictured painting more imaginative imagery, but when I switched to oil, I couldn't help but want to go paint landscapes again. This was a chance to feel some of the potential in that direction of exploration.
These photos show some of the other decor. Just imagine low light, music and 80 kids in formal attire!
