Sunrise

 

Buy Now - $35 - 4x6in. - collage

For the past few months I have been completely obsessed with abstract (or non-representational) collage. It's why my paintings have been few and far between. At first I just decided to let myself indulge in it for a little while to satisfy whatever temporary draw it had. Not to sell - just to take a break and refill my well for painting. But my desire for it hasn't gone away. And I am now proud enough of the results to try and sell them.

On this last part I have been dragging my feet. As artists I think we always feel like we are stripping down naked when we show our work, and asking - what do you think? (cringe) But this feeling is especially strong when trying something completely different than usual!

So here I am, naked in front of you, showing you my new direction. It's totally fine if you don't like it - I realize this is not everyone's cup of tea. But it's something I like, so feel free not to share with me if you don't like it. : )

No, this doesn't mean I'm done with painting! Not at all. In fact I'm learning a lot about color and design with these little collages. And given enough time I know I will land back on painting with a renewed passion. I always do.

Thanks!
