“Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into nature and which there divines the spirit of which nature herself is animated.” ~Auguste Rodin Contemplation 36″ x 48″ x 2″ Oils HA! 2020 Ready to hang, painted sides Locals can view this work in our gallery by appointment Locals get free delivery within the PDX metro area Shipping inside the USA is Free
This work started as a way for me to continue the lessons learned in “Water Dancer“. This work had no original drawing, it was all done spontaneously, in a stream of consciousness. Scale was not considered, I wasn’t interested in reality, just the gentle push of, “yeah, that feels good.” Sometimes you must give over and allow the muse her space and play time.
Allowing what is
I practiced allowing, what is, to just be. Be here, be big, be tedious, be simply complicated and to be soft, like butterfly kisses. It became what it wanted to be. In the end, so did I. I think that is a good thing. I enjoyed this work, I felt rested everytime I came to it and surprisingly, when I left it each day. The work was hard and satisfying.
I hope you enjoy the work. 🙂 Your friend in the arts, HA!
