Small Embrace, abstract painting #2 of 2017

While I was working on this painting I was thinking about how the things I care about the most are the smallest things… things that cause complete chaos… and that give life purpose.

What does that have to do with what I painted?

I’m painting abstractly right now. I’m working out some issues of size and shape and proportion and texture and transparency and opacity… And also for me, painting abstractly takes a lot of courage and I’m feeling courageous right now! And while I paint I think about life, and the purpose of life. And this is my embracing of life.

Thank you for looking.

Small Embrace, approx. 11×22, acrylic on loose canvas, ready to frame. The photo below is the raw photo I took with my phone (my camera is hiding again). And the photo above I color and level corrected to show how it looks sitting in an interior room without direct light.
