I'm brainstorming and writing down all the ideas I have without censoring myself. Apart from the theme, I need to decide for the techniques to use, the color schemes, the size of the paintings etc. I know it is going to be colorful, that's for sure. I'll do some oils on paper and others on canvas. I'll probably include things I like to paint the most like faces and hands. Maybe I'll let my little children grow up a little, but keeping the purity and the innocence in their expressions.
I like to think in terms of symbols. If I paint a rose, it is not only a rose, it stands for something else (like the one I posted yesterday).
As you see, there is a lot to think about. First I need to decide upon the framework, then I'll plan each and every painting in detail.
Meanwhile I'm planning, I make sure to continue painting other stuff - because there is a danger in letting go of the brushes because you might get mentally blocked from picking them up again.
