B IS FOR BACKGROUND

B is for background...as in there was so much going on today that my blog, which usually occupies prime space in my thoughts, somehow managed to make it to the background of my life.  It all works out perfectly though because I planned to share the background I am working on for one of my latest projects.



I love the texture of the canvas poking through.  The sea green color reminds me of Jamaica.  Sometimes I find it hard to keep the background simple.  I don't want it to compete with the image that will go in the foreground. It's okay for now because today the background is the main focus.

I'm realizing I could use more time dwelling in the background of my thoughts.  It is utterly peaceful and slow paced.  The complete opposite of my foreground which is currently filled with deadlines and checklists.  

I think that is why I spend the most time on making the background of my art pieces.  Layer after layer...stroke upon stroke...paint here, paint there...it's so therapeutic.

What is going on in the background of your life?  Is it in competition with anything more or less important?  Should it be in the background?  Are you avoiding the task of moving to the front?  I'm just being nosey.  Don't mind me but for real, feel free to share in the comments...
