ARETHA FRANKLIN - YOU SEND ME - ANDY WILLIAMS SHOW - 1969 (by ARETHAVIDEOS)

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

i keep looking at this painted space and i have no idea what to do with it.  it looks complete just the way it is, but i know i can’t just leave it like that. i have to use it.
the whole scenario reminded me of something i wrote about once:


It’s so weird how the painting goes through these life phases. It started green, blue and yellow: calm, cool and collected.  Then it went wild with primary colours.  You scrap and pile on layers, like clothing and scars.  You give it scars – pull it back.
Creation. You tell me you’re so happy when you’re painting, so happy.
You work in chaos. Sometimes it’s meaningful, you step back, stare, but at the same time  it’s so random and changes happen so fast that it doesn’t even matter.  The painting was so perfect before (in its yellow, green & blue).  Now you sit and think, make a funny face, scarification.
I’m satisfied. I’m not going to touch it anymore.
You’re a surgeon putting down your knife,  peeling off paint,  call it a day.
Still later, after I come back into the room I see you painting again.
Remember the part I told you to remind me not to paint over? I painted over it by accident.




it is complete!
