A Time for Change – Abstract in Taupe.
I’ve been working on this abstract acrylic painting on a stretched canvas for a few weeks.
I am having so much fun with this new medium. It is such a liberating experience and also such a challenge.
Before ever painting, I would have thought works of art like this were “easy!” Slap and splash some paint on a canvas and call it art.
If you’ve never tried, I challenge you to.
There really is more to it than you realize.
Composition…. Point of interest… Balance….
But really when it all comes down to it…. Are you happy with it? Do you like it? Does it make you feel good? Evoke emotions?
I have to admit…. This piece has been through so many iterations, I couldn’t decide if it was done. I couldn’t decide if it was “worthy” to share. I felt like I liked it, but I doubted myself, so I sent a picture of it to my youngest son, and asked: “What are your thoughts?”
He liked it, but he reminded me I should not need affirmation of my own art.
How humbling is it when your kids have to remind you of how to be a confident adult?
And then again, what pride do we feel when our kids remind us of how to be a confident adult?
So here is my latest abstract – A Time for Change.
And I like it!
Cheers & Hugs,
