For all those who doubt and those who think they’ll never make it check out Roda’s post :
These are the finished paintings :
Hopefully you’ll like them .
Looking at these paintings I came to consider that their effect on me was close to what koâns do : they provoke awareness.
Awareness of beauty, of the wonderful experience of contrast and nuance. Every new pattern hitting my retina a reminder of the miracle of being alive on this tiny planet in the midst of the billions of others in one out of trillions of galaxies…
I finished 2 smaller paintings that don’t have a title yet :
And here are 2 big ones still in progress :
I adore the colors in this one.
The second one is less advanced but there are a few nice contrasts appearing already. Every time I am astonished by the beautiful amazing colors I get using only intuition. I deeply believe that these colors are within me and I’m sure they are the mirror of my emotions.
Life is a surprising journey with new beautiful little wonders around any corner…
This is the final product.
I am of course talking about the painting not the girl ( my daughter Zoe).
The painting has that 40s touch I wanted. Let’s hope my “customer” and sister in law will like it too.
My sister in law asked me to paint something for her. I said ok ( of course) but when I asked her what kind of painting she wanted she told me to do this :
Well it’s still in progress but it is so far away from my usual work that I really don’t know where I’m going. She hope she won’t be disappointed at the end. I’ll try to give it that 50’s touch. What do you think?
I think it’s all too obvious …
Hot and cold colors like chivers running down a spine.Laying down uncomfortable emotions on a piece of cardboard like an offering to that deeper self. Saying this exists and accepting it.
I paint emotions …
The title could stand for solitude but there’s nothing sad about this painting. I think it shows that positive loneliness suited for meditation I like.
When I look back at my early painting 5 months ago there is a real evolution towards more freedom of mind.
This is another painting in progress. I promised It to my wife : the photograph was taken by my daughter Zoé
