New Work

Been working like crazy in the studio, this week I got back to my abstract spiral series. I've finished four this week already! There is nothing better than having an idea work out better than I'd hoped! I love this new series. It's all me, my feelings, what's in my head. I don't even care if anyone else likes them. While, of course, that would be nice. I love them, and if nothing else, I can hang them in my own house.
I may save this series for my next solo gallery show. I still need to take a couple of them down to Gallery 5 to see if they'll give me a show. They are more of an abstract gallery, so I think these will work out well for that venue. I will need at least 10 pieces for the space. It's hard for me to do though, because I'm really anxious to put these up online. I may just post them here to get that out of my system.
Although I know people really like my portraits and pottery work, these abstract pieces feel more like me. I feel like myself working on them. It's hard to explain, but it's like I've finally found the art inside me that's been fighting to get out. It was almost an epiphony when the idea popped into my head. More so than the peace series was.
So, below you can see a couple of examples of the new series. I will post all of the new series on my website by the end of this week. I will also list the smaller sketch watercolors I did for this series on Ebay throughout the week.
Please let me know what you think of these new paintings. I'm interested in hearing some feedback.
