Ready to Hang
'Mystic', is one of my most recent works. Well maybe not honestly, there's always something on the paint table. 'Mystic', tore me up when it came to life. I was honestly painting a commission piece when this painting fell in my lap. What I saw I see alone, others who look at this painting shouldn't be bothered with my interpretation. I have coated this in very heavy varnish, 4 coats of a thick burnishing, yet the finish is flexible. This painting has to have an absolute high gloss. When looking at this painting from the side the reflection of light makes the colors of the art disappear. Very happy with this painting.
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.
