Wow!

I was a bit surprised yesterday with getting a Daily Deviation for Smoldering:

I usually try to thank everyone for the :+fav:'s and I'm going to attempt it eventually, but for now I want to say a general: Thank you so much for all the favs and +watches!

Would also like to thank OfOneSoul for suggesting it and jempavia for featuring my painting.

Terra
24"x24" Oil on Canvas

Another painting that had quite the journey. I had a sketch of this piece that started me down the right path, but then I ended up getting lost a bit. I stepped back from the painting for a time to let it "breathe" a bit and really explored the composition and added bits and pieces to it. I ended up doing a bunch of digital sketches with this painting try to get the feel of it. Towards the end I hit the proverbial wall and just stared at it for a day or two. Then the most amazing and creepy thing happened....I flipped the canvas over and discovered the painting was already done. Hence the wall. Sigh...this is intuitively painting upside down is really becoming a trend for me.

Intertwined
24"x24" - Oil on Canvas

This one took an interesting turn, literally, from my original sketch. I was trying to create another piece using circles like my last one, "Immerse". I found those to be rather intriguing and wanted to do more with them. This painting, however, would have none of it. So I gave in to the colors and movement and struggled a bit. I spent a day or two just staring at it towards the end wondering how I could push it further. So when I get to that point I usually take a picture of the painting and bring it into ProCreate to do some sketching on top of it. Well, lo and behold, the painting was photographed upside down and when I saw it at that angle I called the painting done.

So it seems that I like to painting every other painting subconsciously upside down. Not sure how I fee about that...

Immerse
24"x24"
Oil on canvas

Very interesting direction this one went. I really liked the use of the circles. The most challenging part was the colors and how have them play well with each other. I want to explore this direction some more, but this came together so well that I don't think it will be easy to replicate. Will definitely give it go for the next painting I think.

Fertile Foundation
24"x24"
Oil on Canvas

One of the last paintings that I have reworked. In the paintings initial state it was truly a minimal piece akin to the work of Rothko. And, I think that's what really bothered me about it and it just didn't feel like it was saying anything except, "Look at my pretty colors". So I used that as a jumping point to totally rework this painting and created an amalgamated state of organics and textures. I added some red to liven things up a bit and got this composition that reminded me of new growth coming up from a cracked, yet solid foundation.

Catalyst Stage 02
24"x24"
Oil on Canvas

I wasn't planning on doing a second, complimentary painting to the point where this could be considered a diptych. I just had a bit of extra Paine's Gray on the palette and didn't want it to go to waste. I put down some initial brush strokes and then begin to go with composition that complimented Catalyst Stage 01. I wanted to give the impression that the organics were somehow evolving from my previous painting and I caught a different "stage" of its existence.
