Wish Falls Abstract Painting #7

Well, well, well. This is easier than I thought it would be and a lot more fun now that I’m really into it. At first I really struggled and stressed over the idea of pure abstract work. One has to let go, be free to do abstract. They have to let go of everything being […]

art is the reason I’m not crazy

To the extent that I managed to translate the emotions into images– that is to say, to find the images which were concealed in the emotions– I was inwardly calmed and reassured. Had I left those images hidden in the emotions, I might have been torn to pieces by them…. Carl Jung If I didn’t […]

Artist Thoughts: Seeing and an Abstract Journey

Seeing the Lines I’d like to learn to paint birds and I’d like to learn to paint more abstract pieces such as expressionism, contemporary and modern abstract. I really, really want to do abstract.

Thunderstorm on paper

In addition to the emotional process of creating this painting, there is a storm of art mediums. I do enjoy experimenting with different types of media. In this 6 x 9 painting on paper, I’ve mixed acrylic with sawdust and sand. There is also ink and gel with a final matte acrylic seal. If you […]

Suppose I Could Fly Version Three

It’s a brutal war to fight one’s mind and body, but that is what I do with chronic pain and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. My body fights to keep going. I feel as if I’m losing that battle. My mind fights itself. I sometimes wish to wave the white flag. But what if, suppose I […]

Pan – An Abstract Panel Painting

The reason this painting is called Pan is because I hoped it would pan out.   Not all titles are equal. Pan is an acrylic and ink painting on heavy white board size 12 inches long by 3 and 1/4th inches wide.  Today in therapy I was asked why I do more abstract paintings than […]
