The Most Abstract

Visually, this isn’t much to look at.  Matter of fact, when I look at it now, it evokes “spikey” emotions and makes me feel tense.  This is really the first piece I’ve ever done that was tied to pure, raw emotion.  I hadn’t even intended on making this when I went into my “studio”.  I was very sad and very angry this day after receiving confirmation that we had lost a life that had managed to make it through the first 5 weeks of development.  The urge to do something was overwhelming, and I pulled out the first materials I got my hands on: Newsprint, Oil Paints, and Painting Knives.  I squeezed the oils directly on the newsprint and starting pulling and pushing the globs around the paper as my emotions directed.  It turned out to be exactly what I needed at the time; very therapeutic.  I share it now not because of its worth as “art”, but because of it’s direct link to my soul in an emotional day in my life.  Thanks for visiting.
