Freestyle (Abstract)

16 Apr

freestyle.edd.04.15.2014

Usually I pencil sketch before a drop of paint hits the paper.  Not this time.  I loaded up my favorite brush with black paint and free-handed the lines (except for the circles & border) and then let the colors come as I filled the piece in.  I’m pleased with the design that emerged and find the colors work well together to create a pleasant feel.  I don’t do dark, macabre, evil, weird paintings, that’s not my thing.  I think the world is dark, evil, macabre, and weird enough.  I want my art to be an appreciation of beauty, hope, and light.

      Jacqueline, thank you so much. I too feel like I’m at my best when I enter a piece with total freedom expecting nothing; demanding nothing from the experience except the enjoyment of creating.

    I really like the lightness of your paintings. And yes, i really agree that the world is weird and evil enough, without it being portrayed in art too. You carry on with this, its fabulous!. 🙂

      Thank you so much Maria! That is very kind of you to say. I just went to your page to see what you’ve been up to. Very nice. The piece you did where you’re learning how to paint glass was excellent. Keep up the good work.
