Hidden in the Center

A new series is “Sunflower” I will explore the comment from one of my friends about,…”being hidden in the center.” I will mull over that thought. I often find hidden images in my work.

Sometimes the images lurk just out of focus and sometimes they are less overt. They almost always appear on their own. To emphasize them is now always a temptation. The image that pops is sometimes for me, sometimes from the past, or origin unknown. They come from the universe out there or maybe from the subconscious. The images may speak to me or there may be no message at all, just a reference to or from something else. (All images on site are copyright protected.)

Since my work is more a reflection of reality, well reality as Sherry sees it, I used to try to eradicate them. Now I am sure they bring another dimension to my work. As an artist. I no longer feel it to be unusual for these ghost images or shapes appear in my compositions. I have learned to live with it.

A New Beginning

I am finally getting started with my blog. There will be more to come in the days or months ahead. I plan to use this for exposure for some of my PROJECTS. Current painting series will be featured to start. All work is copyright protected.

This is from the Orchid Lady Series. A study for a larger work to come. The idea came from a visualization exercise. The idea was to see a future of peace and tranquility for myself. The lady is an ideal not reality. A person content in her work and herself.. An affirmation of a self that had been nearly destroyed.
