“Compartmentalizing”

And here is the finished painting…perhaps a message about the pitfalls of trying to compartmentalize. Unfortunately not the best photo as the size of the work presented challenges trying to get the right lighting. If I get a better shot, will post later.

Boxes, walls, and a whole other direction

I had a visitor browse through my studio the other day and they commented on how they find it intriguing that I am continually switching things up. There was a figurative work in pastel tones, behind which was a palette knives birch landscape. And sitting on my easel, still not completed was “this” I had just spent the past couple of days purging, cleaning and organizing and had boxes and walls dancing in my mind. A different style of abstract from my usual more fluid shapes, this one is far more linear. It’s still not completed and we shall have to see where it ends up. The one below  goes to show the power of mood and mind-a totally different colour scheme, vibe and technique…still unfinished but not forgotten.
