Intuitive Splash

Intuitive Splash

Intuitive Splash – now finished.  Acrylic and oils on canvas… 27 1/2″ x 47″ ( 70 x 120 cmts).           This piece was painted with no purpose other than to spontaneously dance with color and texture and feeling…nothing representational that the mind can grab onto…unless it is from the imagination of the viewer, which is eagerly invited. Mainly the senses  experience it….there is no message or purpose beyond that simple thing….the experience itself, what ever that may be.  Art…is a wide open field of discoveries…both in the creating of it, and the perceiving of it. After my many years as a such a controlled and perfectionist painter….this is totally new territory for me. ( one i have been playing with for many months now, as posted in this blog, each a different experience and flavor…and for me, a delight every one, for reasons my ‘mind’ cannot explain. ) Like i have been set free of the mental control part …to just allow something to intuitively occur out of movement and feeling playful and inspired to be attempting such a courageous (for me) thing, and joyful when certain surprises occur as the painting unfolds! The abandon…the out-of-mind field…eyes wide open….with some paint and brushes in hand….here we go on a ride to the unknown. My love for the unknown continues to expand….not just in my art. close up…Intuitive Splash:      Share on...

Splash play….out of my mind!

Splash play….out of my mind!

*1. First installment…january 7 OK…here i go again beginning a painting with no thought…just playing in movement and colors bouncing about in  splashes…. It is a time of breaking out and expanding beyond old ‘boxes’ (both personally and artistically)… allowing new movement without judgement. A journey into the unknown…i am becoming quite the friend of the unknown. The known has become stale…it is past and it is done….todays moments are not carrying nearly as much of the past as before. I am experiencing a fresh air of mystery in this cleaner perspective! I have always been drawn to the magic inherent in the mysterious…and now feel lighter and thus more capable and trusting to take this leap. *2. Jan 8..the next day of a joyful and delightfully meaningless dance of color and texture with oils: I feel like i want to dive into this painting and play with the colors where it calls me. Very in the present moment….empty of mental….to see where it takes me…i have zero attachment to where it goes!!! I love this feeling…very free…breathing life…awake to this moment… This spontaneous approach to my art is reflective of what is happening to me within. A sense of surrender and trust….and a curiousity as to what the universe has for me…a new openness to receive it…(and a gratefulness to be relieved of so much of the weight i used to carry inside.)      Share on...
