You could say I’m ready for spring and summer to come along.
When I look at this painting it makes me think of water coming down a window during a hard rain. It washes away the darkest parts of the day and leaves you with a bit of hope.
I look at this painting and see the woman in the dead center, hardly noticeable really. She’s caught in the darkest parts of the colors. Deep red, black, deep blue, more black and crackle medium to bring out the fragile state of life. She’s hardly noticeable, but she’s there and she’s waiting for the rain to get to her.
If you’re an artist and you’ve not yet tried letting paint drip down a canvas, you’ve got to try it. You’ll be hooked. Of course your own style will affect the final piece as my style comes through. I tend to hide people in my art or twist them into trees or layer them in mountains.
I’ve been looking at minimalist paintings because that’s the type of art I’d like to hang in my home. I have a difficult time breaking from my usual high color, full on emotional art but I do want to try different styles. I’d like to try minimalist art but the concept is so far from my understanding, I doubt I’ll ever grasp it. Then again, I said that about abstract art such as this. I’m loving drip paint and abstract art.

Sunplay is a fun drip paint style abstract piece flowing with color. Crackle medium is used on some areas for extra texture. It’s flow is like lava covering over the old to start a new layer of life.
