Exploring the Territory of Abstract Landscape.
To trek along the path of paint and to dare to go creatively where I’ve never been before, was not an easy endeavor for a painter who spent the last few years learning the craft of painting realism. I knew as soon as I moved into my new studio that I needed to explore new realms. So I plunged into the depths of the unknown and loosened my grip on the paintbrush.
My mantra became, “Let It Flow.” I said it over and over.
I found myself wanting to veer into the lane of realism and then would pulled myself back.
“Let it flow.” I said.
I changed up the color pallet, worked on large canvas paper with squirt bottles and large brushes and turned the music on high.
“Let it flow.”
I made a huge ugly mess.
“Let it flow.”
I let my 3 foot by 3 foot canvas monstrosity sit on my wall for a night. Ick! It was dreadful.
I could barely stand it. Next morning I wanted to procrastinate but, oh no, I didn’t dare. I made myself face that terrible thing and I kept at it.
Then, like magic, a horizon line made itself known and then fire, water, wood and light appeared.
I stepped back, it had my attention now and I was listening with all my might.
This painting titled, Upon Reflection is the result of me not giving up. It’s one of my favorite paintings to date. I learned whenever I commit to a painting, the Muse always turns up. I may have to lure her in different ways ( I often have to prove my mettle and stay through an atrocious start of a painting) but stay I must and see it through to the end.
Painting teaches me everything about life. Everything.
