Taking a break from my portrait series… Focusing on working on abstract paintings with transparent layers, actually, a combination of palette knife painting and transparent layers. I love the freedom of abstract painting. There is something so profoundly satisfying to let loose and just follow your intuition. That’s always been part of the allure for me.

Meditating helps me to come up with ideas for abstract paintings

I’ve committed to stepping up my meditative practice this year. I feel it almost a necessary “grounding” for continued well-being in the midst of the geopolitical turmoil these days. Hey, some people, write poetry, some cook, some garden. I meditate and paint. For me, there’s no doubt that meditating has influenced and perhaps even helped my practice – at least that’s how I feel.

Well, gotta run, there’s an easel and some gesso’ed canvas just screaming my name!

 

Available here!

    What a fine depiction of the vibrancy and chaotic appearance of Mardi Gras! You know how one element can just strike someone in an odd way? The black background on the far left made me think of the long and intense planning that is solidly behind all of the floats and marchers and costumes. It’s almost hidden, but you know it’s there and was an integral part of the event that changes it from loud confetti to a real statement of the people.

      I know abstracts aren’t your favorites, so this is saying something coming from you. Thanks so much Inese!
