Life Bites and Life Kisses – 12 x 16 – acrylic on canvas

Have you ever heard the phrase, ‘Life bites and life kisses’? I only just heard it recently and it’s truth stuck with me… I wanted to find a way to express it visually and the best form that came to my mind was an abstract. In the end though this painting may just evoke feelings of summer waves and ocean days – hee hee – but my original concept was the life quote. I suppose it’s best to leave the interpretation up to the viewer anyway. 😀
Happy Wednesday friends!

Whimsy & Dots – Revisiting my “Non-Representational Side”

IMG_9782_Small
It’s been a long time since I have created any kind of non-representational paintings.  I did a lot of abstract paintings while obtaining my degree in University – actually maybe I over did (burned myself out) because after graduation I went straight into more representational landscape scenes, people and flowers. However, a couple months ago I did the small sketch pictured below and it ended up being my inspiration for the two little paintings I did this weekend. A fun experiment – I hope you enjoy!
