This piece to the left is my current project, Purple Jelly Flower, which is a project that I can't seem to finish. I started this series over the winter with my piece titled "Jelly Cone Flower" which was inspired by gorgeous array of yellow cone flowers and this other-worldy attitude took over. For me, the drips liken to the tentacles on a Jelly fish... so I ran with it with this large canvas of purple cone flowers. I've used my acrylic mediums to try to create that jelly texture and now I am at a crossroads, do I take it further into this other realm or do I call it finished?
I admit that I have always seen a kind of hyper real, perhaps otherwise known as surreal, world and these plants and trees I've been painting of late are evidence of my view.
For those of you who have been asking about my other more abstract works, they are coming! I have several canvases going right now and hope to debut a few new pieces at the upcoming Open Studios on Friday, June 7! Come on down! Ping me on the contact page if you need the address.
