Behind The Paint-Working on the new painting I’ve been doing live on IG. “When Nobody Else Would Love Me (I Had To Learn To Love Myself)” is a work in progress much like myself. It requires daily effort and some days more than others. It’s necessary though to complete the painting…and to complete myself.

I’ve really enjoyed this color scheme and I think it is one of the most powerful. Some of these colors are of equal brilliance or intensity which results in some interesting optical effects. The color red is the color of physical energy, passion, courage, power, will, and desire. The Root Chakra is stable and grounding. Red is powerfully linked to our most primitive physical and emotional needs of survival and self preservation. Red symbolizes energy, action, confidence, courage, and change. Green is the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and environment. It is also the Heart Chakra and thus the color of love. Of course there are some variations and extensions of these colors in this painting, but they form a strong foundation and base. As complementary colors, working in conjunction with one another, they create balance.

You never know when FB and IG are going to crash again. Have yourself a backup plan and buy some art from yours truly so you have something to look at in case it does 😉

As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact segmentations of energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time.

Featured: Getting Back To Where I’ve Never Been (Coeurd’aleuer). This will forever be one of my favorite paintings because of what it represents. This was the scenic overhead view on my first cross-country visit to see Deanne and help her with her recovery in Coeur d’Alene. Deanne was my best friend and muse who tragically went missing at the end of 2015 and has yet to be found. She always called me her Wings and is the reason I have them on my back. I think one of the reasons I work so hard is because of her. I do it in her honor.

This one was a fun one. Because these colors are of equal brilliance, it has a powerful optical effect on your eyes. Original and reproductions available.

I don’t share work in progress pictures often but Braska asked me to because she said she looks good in this one. I am always going to be my greatest work in progress. During the month of “Love” I am sticking with that theme as I focus on a painting about self love. This one will be titled “When Nobody Else Would Love Me (I Had To Learn To Love Myself).” I’m really getting back to fundamentals and learning to love the process of painting again. I’m slowing things down and really investing myself with some glazing techniques that require a lot of patience and necessitate that I step away periodically to evaluate. That time allows me to come back with a clear mind and really build in layers and a strong foundation. That’s what this painting and self love are all about.
