Art Flow

I can’t seem to get myself to truly paint. It’s as if I’m stopped up. All I seem capable of is painting shapes and simple figures or dripping paint down a page. I keep doing it though. These are all watercolor and ink on 8.5 x 5.5 paper. Filtered .

High like the waves

I’ve found that dripping watercolor at night, in bed with my easel, is relaxing. I’m not trying to create a masterpiece, I’m just accepting the way the paint lulls me as it catches up to falling water trails, then leaves it mark. I’ve been doing this nightly for a while and thoughts I’d share a second […]

The Resilience Tree

She’s not hanging on, she’s the reason the white tree limbs sprouts and spreads about. She holds her hands up to the sun and grabs a hold of it. And explosion of turquoise and navy blue begin to circle the sun, but it all leads back to her, the figure hanging there so effortlessly. Her […]

Landfall Abstract Ocean Scene

This entry shows art two art pieces with a purpose. Rise, fall if I must. Stand to meet the challenge. What’s the challenge? I’ve got to get a hold of my stinking thinking. I have to change my outlook one single color at a time if necessary. While writing I felt a sense of urgency […]

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 […]

On the Rise

I’ve attempted to name this piece of art but I’m having difficulties. I see a main figure, a powerful leader with her hands out stretched giving encouragement, strength, maybe even reassurance. Every figure looks to her or is linked to her in some way. They look up, reach up and stretch far to hold her […]
