I'm longing to be painting again. And until I find the right studio space, I'm just feeding my artist's heart with images that inspire me and art I love. Here's a piece by Phillip Taaffe, an artist whose work resonates with mine.
Like Taaffe, I love using decorative and organic forms to create structure and to use pattern in ways that, scale-wise, make you part of the larger field of the painting. When I paint on a canvas that's in the 5-6' range width-length wise, then I am painting in a scale that relates to my body size and there's an amazing energetic feeling of mirroring that takes place while the painting is made.
Today is 11022011. Another perfect mirror. What mirrors in the world do you most resonate with? What objects, or experiences get your energy humming and make you soar? What can you discover about the nature of who you are through this resonance?
