I am as good at keeping up my blog as I am dieting. I have every good intention to do so but…. I’ll eat a cookie instead. Never give up is my motto, however, so here I am once again, posting my thoughts in case someone out there actually cares. I promise not to tell you what I had for breakfast!
What I WILL tell you is that one of my paintings has been included in a new E-Book titled “A Walk in to Abstracts-How do they do that?” published by Sue St. John, a wonderful artist in her own right. This is her 4th volume on the subject, in which she gathers together abstract painters and has them share their thoughts and knowledge on the actual process of their paintings. You can purchase the book for download to your computer at http://awalkintoabstracts4.com/ I’m posting an image of the painting Sue used for my page.
I myself am fascinated to read how people approach the art of abstract painting. I learned a lot and truly enjoyed seeing all the different approaches to the work. One thing becomes immediately clear, I think, and that’s that abstract painting is NOT just emoting on canvas. It’s as thought out as any other genre…sometimes more so…. and is as reliant on the basic elements of painting as any other technique. This is an important lesson to learn.
