My creative style is quirky, eccentric and off the wall, whether writing or creating art. I enjoy working with a variety of art media from Sharpie pens to acrylic paints, to watercolors, to pen and ink, to pencil, to collage, to digital, and so on. The only thing I don’t use is oil paint, because I just don’t have the patience for it. Depending on my mood, I might create a work in the style of realism, cubist, abstract expressionist, and most everything in between.
When I’m creating abstract expressionist art I think of my creative process as the deliberate spilling of whatever’s been clogging up my brain of late. A cleansing brain spill, if you will.
Today I’m sharing several of my recent writing-related brain spills with you. These are greatly reduced in size.
I enjoy creating these when I’m between blog posts, manuscripts, when I’m plagued with a bit of writer’s block, etc. I just put pen/pencil/marker/brush to canvas or paper and let my thoughts and emotions flow. Since I don’t need to concern myself with being precise and accurate (as when I’m creating a realism painting), creating abstract art helps to free up my mind and allow my creativity and imagination to surge. Each time I complete a piece, I’m relaxed, full of new ideas and eager to get back to writing.
(Note: each of the images below has been digitally enhanced to varying degrees, meaning that after scanning or photographing my original art, I made changes or corrections to the original piece using Corel Paint Shop Pro. Changes include: altering brightness, contrast and sharpness; color correction; altering with the use of swirling; adding drawn lines; correcting blurred areas from scan; fixing assorted mistakes, etc.)
(Of course, if you’re not a fan of abstract expressionism, then you probably won’t enjoy--but perhaps you’ll still have fun looking at the art, scratching your head and wondering “WTF?” LOL)
