Starting a visual conversation: Day 1

Creating abstract art is akin to a visual conversation, a sensational dance. Today is the first day of a new series of blog posts which I plan to continue almost daily for the next month.


(Transitions #3, 30×40, acrylic on canvas)

Each painting begins with patches of transparent washes intermingled with opaque passages, a continuous give and take, to and fro, between colors, textures created with bristles or scratching…a process, a development, a discovery unfolding before me…and before I start to edit and stiffle the moment, the mood, the experience, I stand back and sense the peace and satisfaction of the creation.

I hope you join me on this journey, this visual conversation as it unfolds…
