Visual Dreams

I have been away for too long.  I had a difficult time today even finding my blog.  Google had me so confused, it was ridiculous.  This is one of my latest doodles.  The more I look at it, the more images reveal themselves to me.  I was looking for my blog because I needed digitals of some of my paintings for an upcoming show's advertising. 

This is a medium sized piece, 24 x 30.  The only camera I currently have is the one that's on my phone.  I used to have photo editing software (Gimp) but I deleted the program as the last machine I downloaded it to, it came with viruses galore.  I had to reset the computer to factory specifications.  That was a chore I didn't need. 

I rather like this piece, though at times it scares me.  These images came from the paint on the canvas, and my choices of moving it around.  I've considered working it some more but decided to move on to other paintings.  I enjoy this process of letting the images evolve ... and then sit and wonder what made me choose to illuminate and develop the representational images I did.  Analyze self?  I doubt this post will have any attention, my followers are probably not looking for me any longer.  I've recently found the need to share my work, and will continue to do so.  This is only the beginning of new posts, so stay tuned. 

I will be showing my recent work in Portland, Maine during the month of April at the Roux Cyr Gallery of International Art, 48 Free Street, Portland, Maine.  If you're close enough, please stop by at the opening on the first Friday of April, from 5 to 8 pm.  Susan Roux and Paul Cyr have created an amazing gallery ... well worth the stop by or special trip.
