I recently finished another canvas. The overall look of this painting changed in a three stage process. From the start, I never have a plan or image in my mind. Whenever I have tried to do just that, it doesn't work out. With this particular painting, I scraped sections of paint to expose other interesting colors. Also, I spontaneously added dramatic lines, which I'm pleased with and the intense pops of color. You see several zeros layered on top. I'm not sure what drew me to that particular number, perhaps it's the shape of the number that seemed to work and adds a contrasting design element against the hard lines.
So, what is this abstract painting represent? For me, it's our minds trying to put the pieces of our lives together in a way that makes sense. It's like this, we take our creative desires, the logical side of our brain and add input from our lives we deem valuable to form a life journey.
Let's see what you think.
