Small Works of Art With a Big Story

Saturday, July 30, 2016

Long overdue, I'll soon be offering smaller works directly and can not wait to share them with you!

Note: This is a repost of the story behind my Art Yoga's.

If your following me on Instagram you've been witnessing a new mini series I started on
paper. This series titled "Art Yoga" was actually inspired by the pressure to meet deadlines.

I had been waking up around 4:00am and immediately began painting in order to get as much done as possible. One morning I made my coffee, sat at the table with one of my mix media pads and just began cutting small 5x5 squares.

 "Latin Motus"

Just the cutting alone was relaxing me....I would paint on these squares with no goal or purpose at all and was barely even awake. The mornings are always so peaceful so as you can image, I was extremely relaxed and  completely in "the zone" with these little gems morphing into something magical and mysterious.

"June Bug"

I found painting so freely each morning began to serve as the perfect "warm up" before tackling the larger
pieces later that day hence I felt less pressured to meet an important deadline. 

"Fruity Pebbles"

As well as serving as somewhat of a stress reducer, I've also begun to explore new colors and compositions that I plan on "trying" to translate on a larger scale. It's something of a lesson in developing & growing which is always one of our goals as an artist.
