Sometimes I stop and think what the style of art is that I do because I like to analyze it. I often put on music to paint, and it seems impossible for me to paint without it. Music stirs up the right emotions to let out in order to paint properly. Everyone is different, but … Continue reading Expressionism is a Flow
I go on the back porch in the mornings, and casually glanced down at my paint table that reminded me to paint again. Sometimes I don't paint for weeks at a time since I want to get it right when I do. So, I look down and notice the designs on the table are of … Continue reading When a Paint Table is it’s own Painting
New paintings in the form of three abstract expressionist paintings were done yesterday on my back porch, on acrylic paper. I have plans to make one into bookmarks so that one will be in print only other than the bookmarks. The other two are for sale. As I was painting these, I had many thoughts … Continue reading Painting with thoughts..
I noticed there is this stigma I did not existed because I was wrapped up in my own world as an Artist. I get the strong impression most people think that they cannot be Art Collectors unless they are rich, or have a fancy home. None of that is true! Art is a courageous purchase, … Continue reading YOU Can Be An Art Collector!
This painting was inspired by a random photo I saw of an image frame next to a gradient image. I changed the colors and painted with oil pastels. As I was painting, it felt like a frequency like you see in music..waves that go up..and I can't stand straight lines, so when I came time … Continue reading Painting: Whitespace
I am learning once more that painting in general...every stroke matters. When I first started, I read Nancy Hillis blog. She said that for an exercise make six strokes on a piece of paper. She said nobody will do what you do, that alone makes it different. I reminded myself of that today when I … Continue reading Painting; Muse
I write this post because of something that happened to me. I am on Instagram, and do not have hardly any engagement on there with my art. I don't spend much time there because even when I follow all the dumb rules of marketing, I still don't get my work known. I use the account … Continue reading Be An Encouragement To Someone Today
I have been watching two documentaries in recent days, and both of them spoke to me deeply. The first one was about Van Gogh, and it was very sad. It opened up thoughts in me I wish I did not have, but always have had through the years. Van Gogh had some type of mental … Continue reading The Great Expression
I painted this on a weekend. The sun was shining bright, and I opened the windows in late fall, and listened to my Indie song folder and let go. I started in the middle painting orange, and moved across and down. I wanted an abundance of colors and a strong flow of positivity. I call … Continue reading Painting: Breath of Life
15x20 acrylic on flat canvas, abstract expressionist blue and black I did a cloud and blue backdrop, then found it was not enough for me, so I started adding depth with black and yellow, and it has almost an arial view-like essence of a sky so I call it Seeing Clearly because even though the … Continue reading Painting: Seeing Clearly
