Ready to Hang

'Life Blood' was painted in water color fashion, yet I wanted to accomplish it utilizing my style of Liquid Acrylics. The title for me means a lot, bees are incredibly important for the survival of humanity, I'm sure you already knew that. 'Life Blood' was honestly just a break from my typical abstracts and for some reason I just really wanted to paint this, for it's structure, fine lines, color, and definition. 'Life Blood' is painted on 1.5" gallery canvas and doesn't really need a frame. The edges are painted and I sign both the top and the sides of my work, as I really like the contemporary clean look of thick canvas with no frame.

I stumbled into painting some would say late in life, yet I had always searched for a positive way to express myself, however fleeting. Painting rapidly became an obsession as I soon realized that what I had been looking for wasn’t at all what I was expecting. This creative means of expression didn’t have to be beautiful and it certainly didn’t have to make sense. It was most often spontaneous, surreal, and subconscious. This style of painting as I now understand it has been vividly explored and technically termed as Abstract Expressionism. However, painting in the moment is whatever I need it to be, regardless of the term. I do not feel the need to follow any artistic rules or format as this would cross grain dramatically with what I am trying to accomplish with my art.
