Why, hello there, Thursday. You've been nice to me so far. You've allowed me to recover a little from my first encounter with kickboxing last night (AMAZING, by the way), be a grandma early in the morning and make use of my amateur knitting skills, and provide enough sunny light after the majorly gorgeous fog so that I could take shots of my newest artwork. You're awesome.
I'm sort of experimenting with an ever freer style of abstract art on paper, and I have to say I'm in love. I love the texture of the paints against the thick paper, the slight smudges, and of course that metallic shiny new gold paint. If you would have asked me all the way back in high school if I liked shiny textures and abstracts above all things, I would've scrunched up my nose and made it clear that my answer was a definite no. It's so crazy how our styles change over the years, but I can easily say that I love this new style I've learned to embrace.
All three of these paintings make remind me of cold, crisp air and heavy thumping music with the bass. You know, something like "Tighten Up" by The Black Keys or "Go it Alone" by Beck (songs I would've never listened to or appreciated years ago).
I might make stories for one or all of them...what do you think? Any of the three that you'd like to read a story with?
1. Winter's Meditation
My personal favorite it Snowstorm, and it happens to be my first painting to make in this style. I may just have to keep this one for ourselves and hang it up in our master bedroom. I think it'll look awesome in an oversized, thin-rimmed black frame with a big white matte.
Do you find yourself shifting styles? It's kind of eye-opening and fun to experience, huh?
Oh, and if you're curious about other artwork that I'm working on, catch up on my Twitter. :)
