How does one begin an Abstract Painting.

How do you know where to start?  Ahhhhh, yes one of the most frequently asked questions in my studio by visitors.  With my work the stepping off point is nature and as many know water in particular.  But for someone else it could be anything from color, light, pattern, form, the human figure, animals, etc.
beginning of a painting
I may begin with bold marks or layers of paint. Approaching the blank canvas can be a challenge and getting something down with out pre-conceived notions is my biggest stumbling block.

But as things evolve I find that .........The Sea Speaks

Morning Light - oil and cold wax painting

Morning Light- oil and cold wax painting 

Morning light in the mountains is a mysterious sight to behold.  The sun climbs and peeks over the top of the mountain before it is truly "daylight".  Sometimes there is a mist that settles in the valley that the sun will burn off before the light becomes full "daylight".

Painting Talk- " Well Watered"

Is 58:11 The Lord will guide you always...you will be like a well watered garden.

This newly created painting reminded me of the above scripture.  Then after walking parts of California coastline several weeks ago and reflecting on my work at this time I got a real sense of affirmation. A seascape or landscape can be captured abstractly.  As in this case through movement, color and energy.

Isn't creativity wonderful - we can interpret the world around us in so many ways.

"Well Watered" will be part of the upcoming exhibit at Asheville School in Asheville, NC beginning
November 9, 2017.
