Smell the Flowers (2015)

22 Oct

smelltheflowers.edd.10.22.2015

As I was painting the lines started revealing the image of a face on the far right of the piece and I loved the strong, classical appearance of the face and I decided to paint a flower close by so it looked like this person was enjoying its beautiful aroma.  Once again, no agenda and what emerged surprised and delighted me!

What I love about working abstractly is that where you start is not necessarily where you end up and yet the piece that emerges can be distilled down, on some level, to something that speaks to or connects with whoever the viewer is.  What it connects to is that subterranean place in each of us that longs for expression; that is desperate to be known and to be understood.

The Waters (2015)

Water is a profound thing when you think about it.  Water is both capable of sustaining life and devastating it.  We use water to grow things, but too much of it can destroy crops and kill the food we attempt to grow with its help.  Water is a powerful symbol.  Its power and immensity can overwhelm us and serve as a metaphor for times when life feels overwhelming, but it can also bring about a sense of serenity and peace.  Calm harbors and still waters are metaphors for peaceful seasons of life.  Water is, has, and always will carry, for me, powerful symbolic and experiential significance.  I’d enjoy hearing if water is an important image/symbol for you and in what ways.  Enjoy & happy Friday!  🙂

Saw a photo of a small garden of asters and was inspired.
