If you follow me on Instagram (if not, what are you waiting for ? ;)), you know that this year is the year I decided to explore abstraction in my paintings. I am still deeply in love with my Nixies, but felt the need to do something else and see where this would take me.
Abstract art as many many forms, and I knew when thinking about it at the end of 2016, that I would not be bored by picking it as my main focus for the year.
Right now, I am binge watching videos, and even asked a local artist to mentor me on the pouring technique. There are several ways to achieve a specific visual, and I have done a lot of paintings, not getting it as I desire. They are not bad paintings, just not what I am striving for.
If you would like more videos about this type of art, let me know in the comments. I would happily execute 😉
This year, my Soul Whisper (my guiding word) is PERSEVERANCE. I keep it close because I could give up and try something else. But I know I won’t. I can’t. I owe myself that, to persist and continue until I am finally 100% pleased with what is coming out of my hands.
Painting everyday, just for me, is creating a shift. I can feel it in my bones. Find the joy and stick to it. That is my new mantra in the Studio. My fingers are itchy to create new Nixies, but in a different way. I am open to them, never closed that door.
