On Styrofoam about 18×24″ using acrylic paint and some marker.
Most recent painting and I really like it. My ancestors on my fathers side fought in The Crusades and belonged to a battle clan with a crest. The crest is referenced on the girls dress and in the upper left corner of the painting. I don’t have a nice camera yet still using cell phone cameras. I was inspired by festivals with dancers.
This was on a smaller paper. 5″x7″ I think. A bit inspired by the movie The Dark Crystal.

Abstract-for those who don’t know how to actually paint. Colors expressed emotions and I learned which meant what to me. It started to be where I could paint what my hands wanted, but not very well yet. So far, it had been a month.
“Best Friends” This painting was of my best friend and I. Her as the tall blue ice and myself as the short orange fire. I remember, during the mountains being amazed they basically painted themselves.
Addiction and disappointments steps in. At this point, I understand that painting heals me and holds satisfaction. But, I also learn the frustration of wasting resources and lack of flow. If you can experience life through moments of flow you’re life becomes open and pretty surprising. I don’t think I noticed this state yet, just perhaps, painting seemed effortless at times.
“Moth” I figured maybe with some sort of system I could have an amazing result. I experimented with the idea of triangulating colors. Having orange, blue, red, green in one area then carry those colors at an angle away. As soon as I think I have a grip, I lost it. I wasn’t able to hold this painting high because it’s mistakes were too blatant to me. A system, I learned did not always guarantee great results.
