Blackout Abstract Painting #14

Inspired by Austin Kleon’s Newspaper blackout poetry I found myself wanting to do something similar in an abstract painting. I decided that if I strip everything away and focus only on the basic shapes I could create opposing forces reacting to each other.

Changing Series Title

The thought occurred to me this morning.

I think I’ll change the title to my Non-Series to my Free Will series.

I like this better and I feel it represents what I want the series of paintings to echo.

 

So to recap I’ve got four series going on.

Blackout Abstract Paintings – inspired by Austin Kleon’s newspaper blackout poems

Fragile – represents how fragile life is and how we must never take it for granted and to make the most of each day.

The Things Barely Seen – currently none in the series but will allow the viewer to step up close to the paintings and find hidden layers beneath. I like the concept of finding something hidden.

Free Will – anything that doesn’t fit in the other three. It’s what I paint when I need a break from the other series.
