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. This painting is dedicated to my best friend and muse, Deanne Hastings, who tragically went missing in 2015 and has yet to be found. She once asked me to do a huge painting with a giant set of wings. This is my tribute to her. Deanne always called me her “Wings” but now she is mine and I will do whatever I can to keep her spirit alive with the beauty she inspired.
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.
