Teaser For Open Studio

This is a 30x30 Inch oil painting on canvas that took me, quite literally, months to do.  Sometimes I just can't help doing something like this, quite different from my usual contemporary realism.  I can stand for hours in front of the canvas, in a kind of meditative state, just thinking 'Shape' 'shape' 'shape' 'color' 'color' 'color'.  I'm quite sure there are thousands of brushstrokes.  I don't know where it comes from, or if it's 'legitimate', it just makes me happy, and I find myself putting important things off (go home, eat lunch, walk the dog) to do just one or two more colors.

So, no, I was not thinking of Klimt or any other artist when I did this, perhaps subconsciously, but not actively.

WHATEVER!  It's fun for me and I'll have it at my Open Studio this weekend, from 11-5, Saturday and Sunday.  1888 Main Road, Tiverton, RI.

  9. Kelley I am really loving this too. It takes me into it as I explore the shapes, colors and texture of it all. I say keep feeding this space inside you whatever it is it is beautiful and totally legitimate. How could it not be?

  11. So glad you posted this and described being in the vortex! That's how I feel when I am doing an abstract and letting it take me somewhere instead of me trying to GET a painting to look the way I want it to. The experience is heavenly! And your painting is fabulous!! It's all about color and form anyway!!! Love it!!
