Your Brain On Art

Yes, I agree with this article. This is why I do abstracts. I want people to be pulled in to my work. To study it and find new things. To have an emotional connection to it

Female Abstract Expressionists

                                        Women of Abstract Expressionism.
I really admire these women. I love abstract expressionism and have geared my painting toward that direction. I really think I was born to late.

Hands of Blue

I had a dream last night that I was painting on a very large canvas. I was rubbing my hands all over it smearing great globs of a very beautiful blue all over it so that it dripped and ran like a waterfall down the canvas. I looked at my hands and they were also dripping with that amazing blue. It pained me that I had to go to work this morning and not paint. Also I am out of large canvas.

                                             
                                                This is the closest I could find to that color.
