“Abstraction of the Mind”

As you may or may not have noticed, I decided to take a brief reprise from my blog and the whole creation process.

I’ve just not been feeling very creative. I think part of that has to do with how often I’ve been sick lately.

(Just another one of the joys of working with so many kids)

So whenever I’m feeling down, or introspective I go back to abstracts for rediscovery.

Which, is what today’s piece is.

Abstraction of the Mind

Abstraction of the mind

On a whole,I find the process very therapeutic.

I see it as akin to doodling.

“They” (the art teachers that be) say artists who have creative block should try doodling until they find what their doodling to be interesting.

This apparently helps to loosen up your creativity.

I just like getting lost in the unknown beauty of the colours.

Here are a couple close ups of some of my favorite areas.

Well I guess that’s it for now.

I’ll try to add some more art sometime this week.

  1. Nice work. I noticed you have a talent for naming your art. The words are very defining. Question’ do you name a piece before you paint or’ do you name it when you’re finished? citiperk.com citiperk.wordpress.com


  2. Thanks. I always name a piece after I’m finished. Art is one of those things that takes on a life of its own. So if I start out my naming it I may find it has changed into something completely different and the name is no longer fitting.


  3. Heh, and sometimes you forget what you called a piece and the name becomes something new based on your new perception of the piece.

    But yeah, she does have a talent with the names, doesn’t she?
