Tax Prep for 2012 is complete! Snow floats down from the heavens, a pot of hot tea is steeping and I am ready to switch my focus from numbers to shapes, colors and values! What a joy to return to the easel. In preparation for the upcoming solo exhibits on Healing through Art I am reworking many of the paintings from the 2003 exhibit that introduced my intuitive paintings to the public.
Left: Untitled No.6, 2003 Right: Untitled No. 6 2013 ……… Oil on canvas, 30″ x 40″. Day by day, it’s difficult to measure growth, to be aware of increased knowledge, understanding and the ability to see what to do next …. to see where a painting can go a bit further toward a stronger resolution. After a decade of painting and drawing daily, as well as growing older (and hopefully, wiser) the message behind the art has experienced a transformation, one that is more positive, more optimistic, stronger in communicating the energy I experience when creating these abstract, intuitive paintings.
