lots of layers, history
scraping back
laying on again.

only this part of the tree remained from
a whole forest of them - don't know why.
but am drawn to the strangeness of these
leaning gnarled remnants of trees.

similar to the other but different
using the knife a lot
move between warm and cool colors
back and forth

feeling the need for something abstract next

life takes over - no posts for a week

wanting to do a series of lotuses
same image, size 
messing with it in subtle different ways.
"love it til you don't"
in this case, loving the lotus still.

the lotus
keep coming back to this image
open, receptive, beckoning.

accepted into an artist residency
in the kapadokya region of turkey for sept
dry, lunar-like, strange landscape.
what images to come ~

this was done as a companion to 
2 earlier paintings (1/19, 2/4)
someone is interested in - 
sometimes the inspiration comes from
others response - love that co-creating thing.

i like my images to evoke a sense of place
but never to give themselves away.
curiosity and imagination grab hold
more interesting to me than any defined place.

this started with a leafy image
but it didn't want to stay
it's buried in there somewhere.

moving between the full abstract painting
and the familiar imagery of natural forms
they are not mutually exclusive
sometimes a defined shape or image will 
call to be included, sometimes not.
