Wow what a semester and where has it gone?!
What have I been up to (besides hogging the computer to research Bernini and Degenerate art till all hours of the night?) well take a look!
I have continued my focus on capturing the feelings and experience I have encountered in nature, but have narrowed it down to the awe from light. What about light? Well specifically the way light looks through mist, fog, clouds, and/or water when I have my glasses off (if you can see things past 6 inches clearly, then you will have to take my word for it). There are still hints of floral like imagery, but they fades out to just nuggets of colors hidden behind great smudgy patches of whites and grays. I also played around with the contrast of dark and light, having light coming out of the dark and vice versa. Ive not sketch out a single painting but only started with the concept of emotions and light and dived into the paint letting my intuition lead the way.
My hope is to create paintings that can remind the viewer of a moment they found peace and awe from something they viewed in nature. This life, and goodness the world, is full of too many negatives right now and I hope to counterbalance that a bit 😉 I hope my paintings can be an oasis
Here is the progression of Ablaze
Here is the progression of Adrift
I finished my other paintings, but am waiting to show them to you once everything is finished…….. 😉
