Central piece

Painting #4.

I’ve been toying with the idea of ditching the hexagon layout and going with a linear one.

I wanted a key piece, a painting that would stand out from the others and be central to the entire work. I think # 4 is that painting.

I wanted it to reflect me as well as the complicity of life. So, I’ve named it “Creator’s Touch.”

It is both representable of my touch as the artist and God’s touch as the grand designer of life.

Creator’s Touch

“Window” to your soul maybe?

As mentioned in my previous post, 2 more paintings are now complete and I’m quite pleased with how they turned out.

I was working a split shift last week so I had a nice long break in the afternoon to relax so I decided I’d start working on painting #3.

My muse ended up being the sun shining through our patio windows. Thus I named it “Window.”

It’s not as abstracted as the previous 2 paintings but I like it all the same and ties in well with the rest of them. Let me know what you think!


An understanding of “Life”

I’m feeling good. I’ll start by saying I’ve just finished two more pieces of the series I’m working on.

But first, let me provide you with a little clarity and insight into the paintings thus far.

When I started this project I wasn’t entirely sure where I was going with it or what I wanted to do with it.

Thus, 2 un-named paintings and an uncertainty of what would follow. Now however, I’m 4 paintings into the project and have become enlightened you might say as to what it is I’m doing. And what is that you ask, or I’m sure you would if you were here or perhaps at the very least think it…right?…right?…anyway 😛

The first painting was started when I was on my break at work. I was quite literally just playing around, trying to kill time until my next class arrived. So, I started to sketch things around me and thought it would be fun to abstract them resulting in un-named one. Which I have renamed as simply “Work“.

The second painting was done while I was sick at home. I decided that since I was painting a series on “Life” (specifically mine as well as the universality of everyones’ life) sickness would be an appropriate topic, so I grabbed all the various meds in the house and started sketching/abstracting/painting away. Thus un-named 2 has been renamed as “Illness.”

This brings us to the new paintings which I’ve decided to post separately.
