On the Outside
"On the Outside" an abstract with a story. My strokes, my paintings, always have a meaning, maybe you need an explanation or must read between the lines, but a story lingers, a narrative lives on the canvas. For me it isn't just the paint and balance, there is an emotional story tied to every piece. Enjoy. oil on canvas.
With a figurative piece it might be easier to reveal a story line, a poetry of figure in the positive and the negative. With all my art, I get lost in the paint, the process the imagery the iconography. With abstractions It is the linear and mass, the shapes and form that I begin my emotional journey. This happens be a medical situation with the very youngest in the family. WE all have issues, large and small that are stressors in our lives, I am so fortunate to be able to turn to canvas, brush and paint to feel out those situations. I can become quiet and intimately involved with my thoughts and contemplate the actions. I can feel and translate the sorrows and the triumphs. My art becomes my best medicine. How I can process and reconcile feelings, how I fraction off the families and know that there are still passages to one another, that we will never be left alone. I never wrote or shared the thoughts behind a piece until I was asked to do so recently. Many sleepless nights, when getting up and painting relieves the stress and allows the movement of strokes to take over. The recognizable hub of the family is still intact, in this the ocher orb is the one family and passages are laid out as routes to the situation, yet a piece of rose wood lies vertically not allowing some information to get through. Only hope. Belief and time to escape with my paint and thoughts aides in a clearer mind. I am so very blessed.
This is a pleasant size piece a 24" x 24" x 1 1/2" deep.
Enjoy unframed, but if you desire a frame, I would recommend a floater frame. Also play a round with the frame option under the print shop, even if you want the original, it is a wonderful tool that Artspan offers.
