The Web we Weave inside our Head

Sell Art Online

We as human beings can sometimes get ourselves in a real pickle wouldn’t you agree?

There are times in life when you think you are on the right path and you are looking straight ahead towards that goal or that endeavor. Whatever it is and all of a sudden something gets thrown at you and knocks you down.

Your mind is spinning and you are a hot mess. I did this ink drawing during a somewhat stressful time in my life recently. It looks like what my brain felt like with swirls here and there and so many thoughts fighting to stay on the frontline of my attention span.

But in drawing these shapes and lines over and over again in a somewhat robotic or trance-like state, it calmed me down.

Have you ever had so many things going on in your head and you were frustrated, overwhelmed and felt chaotic inside but things seemed to calm as you wrote out your thoughts? Maybe all you needed was to vent to someone until all that stress just left your body like a hot air balloon deflating?

That is what this drawing did for me and looking back on it makes me realize that things can be clear in your mind once you release what is stressing you out.

But oh my what a web we weave inside our head.

Do you have a time when you felt this way? What helped you release it or vent out what was bothering you?

Busy creating, busy thinking and planning

There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted. -Henri Matisse

I’ve been quite busy as of late. Busy creating, busy thinking and busy planning. I am working on several pieces right now to complete a series I’ve had in mind for some time now.

All this is in preparation to submit these pieces somewhere.

It is far too easy to get caught up on the internet with social media and all the other great things the internet has to offer.

I have had to step back for a bit to clear my mind as I work towards finishing these works. This way, I know it is all mine.

Abstract art is so much more than throwing some random paint colors onto a canvas and it has been challenging but rewarding at the same time.

Pretty soon I will be ready to put these works online and start sending these out to see if they can be shown somewhere. I hope you artists that read my blog have a day filled with creativity and imagination.

Until my next update.
