You Were Born For This, by Jennifer Underwood. Copyright 2021 I wait until the right moment to paint, and sometimes summer makes it hard. But I turned on my music to a song I had not heard in a long time-Unsecret-For this, you were born for, featuring Ruelle, another favorite singer of mine. As I … Continue reading Painting: You Were Born For This
You, 16x20 acrylic on flat canvas This painting was started in 2019 as a finger painting, it is the black in the back of the white. I left it like that for a long time, and decided to add more white and work over it. As usual, I plugged myself into my dreamy Indie music … Continue reading Painting: You
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
