WE MUST BE AWARE OF THE FRAGILE ONES- ORIGINAL ABSTRACT


I love the colors of blue!  So many things are blue in Nature, you can hardly help but like them.


This work started with a painted paper made last year, mostly with blues.


I really like the finished work.  For whatever reason it makes me think of the weaker people in our world.  The reserved, timid, shy people that have little to say .
It looks like their world swirling all around, out of control but still shimmery and safe.

THAT CRAZY HEART OF YOURS - ORIGINAL ABSTRACT ART


Hey Friends,  Just listed this on my FASO website last week.  It is 20" x 16" canvas panel. Would look great in a floater frame.  Looks like a conversation piece to me!
Check it out HERE.


THAT CRAZY HEART OF YOURS is a sentiment that could apply to a lot of situations.  Do you ever get mad at yourself for some of the feelings your heart seems to keep from you?  Or the ones it keeps throwing in your path?
Do you ever feel like your heart/soul is trying to trip you up?  Trying to keep you from growing?
All of this stuff comes from a Crazy Heart.

THE WAY LIFE IS LIVED - ORIGINAL ABSTRACT INSPIRATION


The Way Life is Lived was taken, by a backroad through my brain, from a conversation with an old friend from high school days.  The take away was, we gotta do the most we can to live our own lives.


The Way Life is Lived can mean a couple different things.  Are you living your life to the fullest extent?  Are you just passing the days, waiting for something bigger and better to happen?  Are you living in the past?
 You want your child to have the best of everything and a better life than you had, but you can't live live his/her life for them.  Let them fumble and fail, help a little in getting back up.  Show them constantly, you love them but don't live for them.  You have a life too and I hope you are doing what makes you happy.  This is not a dress rehearsal.
I could go on but who gives a ____?
Don't you think a Baby would enjoy looking at colorful abstract?  It is listed HERE.
Glad you stopped in.

BLINDED AT A YOUNG AGE - ORIGINAL ABSTRACT ART


Hey Friends,  Hope your monitor shows the hint of color in this work.  It is listed on my FASO web site HERE


As usual this image came from a song.  Sad part is I can't remember now what song!?
But I was feeling at the time, that the grays and blacks and a hint of color COULD  be the way a person might remember what the world looked like after a few years of no sight.  Maybe it was a Ray Charles song, all though I don't believe he ever had sight.
Anyway I love how it turned out.

A MILLION YEARS AGO - ORIGINAL ABSTRACT PAINTING


Hey Friends,  I hope some of the Glenvar Girls see my blog.  It would give them a little insight into my brain.  Maybe they could even say 'so thats what is wrong with her'.  HeeHee.
Looking forward to our pajama party!

This is listed HERE


I just plucked this title out of the air.  I was frustrated that I could not think of anything creative or unique.  I labor over my titles as much as the painting part!  Do You?
It seems to me the title should/could give a viewer some insight into what the artist is trying to say.
I'll get blasted for that statement.
Do you think it fits?
A million years ago what did they use to draw with?  Were humans even around then?  I can't remember our timeline, but what difference does it make?  We say 'a million years ago' for a lot of reasons that make no sense.
So that's my thoughts for this creation.

CELESTIAL SUNFLOWERS #1 AND #2 - ORIGINAL ABSTRACT ART


Hey Friends,  This set can be what you call a dyptch  or they can be displayed indivually.
They were inspired by my last visit to BEAVER DAM FARM in Buchanan, Virginia.  They have a sunflower festival there every year.  AgroTourism, even though they are a dairy farm, they are struggling like most farmers so they started this wonderful festival and I hope you go next year.


Here they are together, a little too together.




A shot of them together over a desk.  If you love sunflowers I think you will love these.  The colors are very sunflower-ry.

Hope you look at the link to Beaver Dam Farm, if you click on one of the photos, you will see a lot more hidden in there somewhere. And hope for better weather next year.

CONTORTED #2 - ORIGINAL STILL LIFE PAINTING


Hey Friends, I started a series of contorted vases a month or so ago.  This is the 2nd, and posting this has made me realize, I have not posted #1 yet!  I guess I should be expecting this more often!  LOL  It is on my FASO website HERE.


If you were to look at my Instagram you would see it and that I am using acrylic pour skins for these vases (most of them)  This pouring technique is a big pain in the wazoo so I may give it up.  I like different that's why I tried it. 
Thanks for stopping in.

WHERE THERE IS PERFECTION - FLORAL IMPRESSION


I wanted to play with some soft feminine colors and tulip shapes.  This vertical canvas seemed perfect for the job.  I can see it in a floater frame or a tropical, beachy, pale color frame.


The shape of this canvas lends it self well to a lot of odd spaces.  Contemporary decor or traditional !

It is for sale on my secure website HERE

DO THE BEST YOU CAN - ORIGINAL SMALL ABSTRACT ART


Hey Friends,  This new piece of inspirational art is listed for sale on my website HERE . You can see it more clearly also.


Did you hear this a lot when you were a kid?  I did on occasion, but mostly I heard "She's not living up to her potential" (teachers).  Now that is inspiring another painting!

Have a wonderful week.
