Spring break...a painting a day...they're not getting any more adventurous though. It's a bit kitschy this one I guess, I don't usually do a lot of blending and wiping. Yesterday's painting set the stage and I couldn't help myself continuing that process today. There's always naturalism as to resort to when innovation doesn't appear naturally. They say paintings choose their own path and the painter is a mediator. M.I.A. is yet another musician who had roots in the art education. M.I.A. is however not part of my lecture on art and music that I've been preparing in the last week. The first of M.I.A.'s songs in this years 100 is Matangi from the album with the same title of 2013.
