So, I've finally completed the two pieces I began in Samantha da Silva's FEARLESS painting class and though I took photos under several lighting conditions I just couldn't seem capture the nuance and depth I physically see in the work (thus the detail images).
The beauty of EMERGING I+II is that even though each canvas began with absolutely different palettes, the layers that followed brought the pieces together. I also love the fact that they stand alone as separate works, can be hung side-by-side or as they appear here, one over the other.
I don't publicly share my abstract work very often, and even though I have completed several abstract commissions throughout the years, it still feels so out of my element. It sometimes feels a bit like sharing the deepest parts of myself. But the process is delicious...just responding to personal thoughts & feelings, to the images & music to which I am exposed, to the media & tools available to me. A wonderful way to work.
