Today I tried to combine story telling with iconography, as the Bauhaus Master, Paul Klee did. However, as I understand the art of Klee, he had very few preconceptions of the final outcome of his painting. He would take his pencil point ‘for a walk’ and let his creativity guide him. His astute design sense provided the direction of the pencil, the placement and color of the dot or other figure.
My painting below is a recap of my trip down south. I had the outline of the idea in my head before I began. It was cut and dried: home – road – destination.
Not exactly Klee-esque, but I’m working on it.
