In the Beginning
As those who have been following this blog know I have a real love of abstract art. I wonder if this is because it gives me the freedom to let go and experiment and allow my emotions full vent of feeling. You also know that my first real adventure into the world of abstract was a triptych on beginnings and creation (discussed last week). This venture gave me the courage to go big and produce. “Alpha Omega,” a large explosive burst of colour. This one and another were purchased by a lovely family in the USA. Since then the adventure has gone on and I have tried all sorts of things.
This enforced time of not painting has given me much time to reflect and wonder. Some have sold some I still have. Some I have painted over and one large canvas gave me much fun. An abstract that had not sold though a good few people had told me they liked it, having viewed it on my website. I was in that kind of state of not knowing. So I painted over the signature and placed out to be collected by the rubbish collectors. It never ever reached the back of the bin lorry. Somebody removed before they came. Now I wonder? Did they hang it? Did they have a use for the canvas? Or did they paint over it? Whatever I hope it brought some joy.
The painting above falls into the same category. I do not know what to do with it. It has hung on my wall forlornly for over a year now and it is only now starting to get into my inner me. Something has to be done with it.
Now I have met some really lovely people since I took up blogging and some good advice has come my way from fellow bloggers. So here we go. All recommendations please about the abstract work on this blog. A for the Bin, B for use the canvas for something better, C for think a bit longer. Honest responses only please.
Right as I said on my other blog I have my trainers and running gear on and am heading for that ten mile run. Have a day of surprises and remind me again what day is this, apart from Maundy Thursday.
I have another blog where I have my daily musing and thoughts and use my art from time to time as a prompt for thought. It can be seen at:- Age Matters Not
