The making of this abstract painting titled Vortex of Thought came together very organically after just 2 sittings,.
Another collaborative abstract painting
This has become kind of a fun exercise for me, painting with other people. Creating artwork is usually a solitary occupation. But my friend Ashlee Nichols and I painted this together on a spur of the moment.
And to think, it all started with a text message…
Yup, I received a text from Ashlee asking if she could come by. Now I’m not gonna lie, I try to guard my time and get the most out of a 10- 12 hour work day. However, when a friend is in need , I try to be there for them. Even if it’s only to listen.
Imbued with healing affirmations
We talked so much that evening that we were quickly solving the worlds problems, all while enjoying a bottle of white wine. Next, we opened a bottle of red. And it was somewhere in there that we grabbed this 30″ x 40″ canvas and began painting. It’s funny, we were so focused on healing (isn’t that the mantra lately?) that we wrote healing affirmations within the layers of glazed paint.
The next day I worked on it some more, adding a few tweaks here and there, but largely, leaving it alone. This painting came from the heart with no judgement and no filter. But sometimes you just have to live life that way.
Have an amazing New Year! Wishing you much love and good health in 2019…
