“Take your broken heart, make it into art.” ~Carrie Fisher
I am still on my neverending quest to create a body of abstract work. I have been exploring many avenues trying to find what feels right. Just when I think I’ve got something, I wind up hating them and painting over them. Who knew it would be such a struggle?
These latest pieces seem to be feeling good to me finally. Truth be told, inspiration came in a very unusual way. I was shaking up a bottle of high flow black acrylic paint and I didn’t realize the cap was not screwed on. Black paint flew all over my studio. The idea was born. (And an unfortunate mess.)
I love the play of bright colors getting muted with a coat of white and then a big splash of black creating a focal point. I’ve been so affected lately by the political tumult in the world and I’ve thrown myself into my work. I’ve let my whole body get into these pieces, using big motions to create the brush strokes. It feels good to get it all out.
I’d love any and all feedback. Still working through these.
