Another Older Abstract: “Soaring”

This one is from 2009, when I decided to try acrylics again!  I did about ten 36″x36″ acrylic paintings in a couple of weeks, working furiously (which you have to do if you’re using acrylic, right?).  I was even using interactive paints, which can have the painting time extended with certain mediums, and can be reactivated with water within a certain time period.

After doing those ten, I went back to oils.  Now I’m giving heavy body, non-interactive acrylics another go, and finding them kind of cool, but still I have to work fast.

This is one of my favorites from that period.

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see, but it is impossible. Humans hide their secrets too well.

  • I really like this one. I see two forces in tandem opposition, moving on to the next thing – whatever is through the door that opens when another closes, unknown potential over the horizon.
