Untitled 2-2017 (2017)

5 Jan

A new acrylic on paper.  Not sure what this is exactly or what it conveys.  Feels a little ethereal.  I loved the way the colors came together.

Sprout (1620-40) (2016)

Well it seems as though it has been far too long since I’ve posted.  Life and work have been keeping my creative pace going a little slower than usual.  My first piece of 2016.  I just love losing myself in painted lines and lovely colors.

Smell the Flowers (2015)

22 Oct

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!

Vine (2015)

15 Oct

Vine.edd.10.14.2015

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.

Horse and Rider on a Sunny Day (2015)

7 Oct

Horse & Rider.edd.10.7.2015

Funny how my normal little abstract line scribbles revealed this image.  Didn’t set out to paint a picture of a person riding a horse but that is what I saw and how I directed the color when adding it to the piece.  Love these happy accidents when they occur.

Watercolor sketches of Indiana Fall leaves. The leaves haven’t turned yet but will in just a few weeks. This is one thing I will miss once moved to Florida. You have really missed out on a gift from God if you’ve never walked through a woods with turning leaves, or even better yet walk into a woods and just sit on a stump and watch the beautiful dance of golden leaves falling. And even better yet, take your kids or grandchildren with you and sit quietly, and admire the beauty of the woods and the creatures that live there. It’s time we all slow down and be thankful for the beauty given to us, and not let it pass without notice.
