Above and Below

36x18" acrylic on canvas

"Above and Below"

 I titled this one "Above and Below" because I look at it and feel like I'm at the bottom of the sea, but I also have the perspective of being on land, or maybe rowing along on a boat, and looking out onto an inviting body of water.  I think the green seaweed/reeds adds a bit of mystery to it as if you want to push them aside and get a closer look or get past them.

The Bridge

36x18 inches

"The Bridge"

 This one took several sessions of painting to get to where it is at now, but I really enjoyed the process and love how it turned out.  Sometimes paintings just come naturally and it just flows easily start to finish, other times not so easy the first try.  I've learned to work past the "misses" and accept that as part of my process. Some of my favorite paintings that I've done came from continuing to paint over something I wasn't happy with. 

The name of this painting came from a talk I had with my friend Michele. She started talking about seeing it as some departure into the afterlife and pointed out how she sees a bridge - I didn't even see it there until she started talking about it. The whole painting changed to me as soon as I saw the bridge! It's funny how someone pointing out something can change my whole perception of my own painting! I gained a whole new appreciation for this one. It's so great hearing how other people perceive the same thing I painted, that is one of the things I am beginning to love about creating abstract art.

 Every time I look at this one, that's what I see now - The Bridge.

Paw at the Wild Night

three panels 10x20 each - 20x30 inches total.

(SOLD)

I titled this one "Paw at the Wild Night"

I painted this while listening to Joanna Newsom, and at some point during the painting process I became frustrated with how the painting was coming along (it looked completely different than it does now, which tends to happen a lot).  I remember the song "Swansea" came on and I hear her singing "paw at the wild, wild night" and ended up taking my frustration out on the canvas and got in there with my hands. So yes, finger painting was involved. I'm such a child. But I really like how it turned out. I was pawing, and pawing. and pawing.

 

painting again!

I started up painting again! I've switched to using mainly acrylics for now, and working on abstracts and have been enjoying it a ton! You can see my paintings in my Etsy shop at http://artbycarey.etsy.com.  Thanks for looking!! I will be adding more soon :)
