Beginning painting
Version 2

What may seem evident is not always the case in abstract art, which is why I have such a passion for this art form. Stepping back and really looking at how a painting evolved from a very well-defined and controlled idea to a place of complete abandonment is just so exciting and invigorating.  It’s like runner’s high except now I’d rather experience it as “painter’s high.”  After finishing the initial painting, a dear friend and great artist and mentor, Glenda Green (glendagreenart.com), helped me reach the true essence of abstract, that place of abandonment where you just let go and become spontaneous with brush strokes and color. I absolutely love the iterations between the beginning and end and couldn’t be happier with the end result.  Special thanks to Glenda!
