Ready to Hang
Yin Yang is 2 paintings. Each are 24" x 18".. The trick to this mirrored painting was accomplishing two different secondary colors. The concept of light and dark to me will always be intriguing. This painting exemplifies that theory. I have this painting hanging staggered vertically in my home now. Takes up less horizontal wall space, and looks a bit better vertically anyway.
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.
