When the gift of art came to me suddenly in June/July of 2017, I had to find a way to create what was newly in my brain. The colors and the shapes that were moving about demanded to come to life. They came as vector cats (cool cats) and through blips and blobs on my new digital canvas. The gift was there then … but time and practice has refined the gift over the past two years as my tools and methods continue to increase. This piece, “Lover’s Embrace”, is a more refined celebration of the “blobs” that I placed on canvas.
“Lover’s Embrace” celebrates four pairs of figures, face to face - front to front - and a simple sensuality passing between them. Embracing, engaging in different levels of space through position and perceived movement. This is my two year anniversary piece.
“Boomerangs and Blobs” was my introduction into working with composition and various color palettes (this one was Eames - MCM). I was just learning my way around the canvas and it was exciting and fun. This was my very first abstract work in June/July of 2017.
