Today is AEDM day 19.
I have had this 30x30" canvas waiting for me to tackle it for quite sometime. Yesterday I was ready. I always had a black and white abstract in mind for this canvas but when I got it up on the easel a different feel came to me. For me abstract is very personal. It comes from deep within me. I know some people who create abstract by simply throwing some paint on the canvas
without any emotion or intention to it, and that is fine.
Everyone creates differently. With my abstracts they have to speak to me.
I started like this and if anyone knows me at all, blue is NOT a color I like or work well with. So I was surprised when this is what I picked up.
I even said it out loud.
This painting went through a bit of metamorphosis.
A lot happened before I got to this point.
In my mind I was thinking soft gentle colors and then something disturbing.
A bright red to stir the soul. However, it wasn't there. The blue was
disturbing me. ha ha ha
So I put on a clean clove and let loose.
Yes, all of this is done with my hand.
Here is where I am now and I feel better with it.
As I look at this on my PC screen, it fills me, it's done.
This will go on my abstract wall in my living room.
How do you create?
Be safe out there and wear a mask.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
