12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #24 of 24, ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’, The Worksheet

♪ Oh this worksheet I manage to construct,

Arranging shapes with thought and luck

Connecting everything to a can of soup

As awful odors knock you for a loop ♪

 

♪ Even after the paintings first stokes are started

Questions of placement and a few items departed

With an eraser several selections require a tweak

Those final results I will show you next week ♪

 

♫ Chorus

Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Checking the month, day, and year should be duly noted

Oh Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Aptly suggest that the can might be bloated ♫

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

After a slight intermission for Postings of the 1448 Gallery exhibit, the Monday’s posting will now return to the 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s project. After over two years of Monday postings, these are the final two paintings in the project.

From the + 12 portion of this project, the ‘Doodles’ for this painting were selected by Jesse, one of my two sons. My other son, Eric, had chosen ‘doodles’ for painting #12.

Jesse’s first choice was the doodle circled as #1. Not satisfied with this doodle as the main subject, I selected, from another of his choices circled as #2, the one to the left circled as #3 to play the main subject/design role.

Next Monday the ‘Worksheet’

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Contemplating Flight’, The Doodle #19

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #19

Title-’Contemplating Flight’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

So, here we go, posting the last six paintings in the 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s Project.

From the + 12 portion of this project, these ‘Doodles’ were selected by a good friend, Deborah. Doodle No. 1 posed a particular problem in trying to develop it as a main subject in a 12 x 12 inch painting. It wasn’t working. I then decided to include ’doodle no. 2’ (another selection by Deborah) into the equation, also rotating it 90 degrees to use it vertically rather than horizontally. The ‘birds’ now became more of a supporting role to the overall design as to be seen in the Worksheet.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Pondering’, The Doodle #18

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #18

Title-’Pondering’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

From the + 12 portion of this project, this ‘Doodle’, from 2012, was selected by good friend and fellow artist, Mattye. Mattye selected the ‘Doodle’ circled in red, #1. My first attempts at creating a design for the doodle proved problematic. I made several reasonable attempts and finally decided on one for a worksheet. I even started the painting but indecision persisted and I set it aside. A few months ago, I was working in my current sketchbook and doodled a design that intuitively directed me to add a modified version of Mattye’s selection, shown in Circle #2. This new take on her ‘doodle’ selection seemed to work where all other past attempts left me unsatisfied.

The ‘Doodle’ shown above for Painting #17 was selected and the ‘Worksheet’ completed during a two day stretch this past September, along with the previous #16 Design. As mentioned, in those previous posts, there are some design connections which are best described with next Mondays ‘Worksheet’ post.
