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.

Boiling Point
24"×24" #oilpainting

Great journey with this one. I loved exploring new shapes, it was quite the challenge. I debated on adding colors to the circles, but wasn't feeling it.

Amethyst Refraction
24"x36"
Oil on Canvas

I've been looking back on this textured minimalist period; and though I liked a lot of the pieces, most of them felt like I could push them further. So this year has been the year of reworking some of my older work and giving them new life. This also became a bit of an experimental piece as a result of this rework. I didn't have many elements to work with so I incorporated large blocks of color and shading to give a bit more depth. I'll probably be exploring this some more with other pieces new and old.

Can't wait to get a better photo of this.

I reworked this paining:

The Wandering
24"x24"
Oil on Canvas

This took me a bit of time as I was really exploring things and trying different colors. I get stuck on the same palette and get too comfy so needed to use something different. At times I felt a little lost with this one, but I think we are in a good place.

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...

Hey dawg, i seriously love your art!
Just by looking at your paintings gives me a really pleasing and relaxing feeling.
And the robot stuff is very cool too, i love the simplistic and dystopian style you put into it
