Spring is definitely my “Go” signal for my abstract painting renewal. Spring always brings out the growth hormone in me. What about you? The new, green sprouts coming out of the ground, the winter is finally over, and the new spring fashions and gadgets are in the stores. Maybe my spring garden photos will inspire you as they do me to reach deeper into that space where inspiration and motivation lives.
“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome”. ~Anne Bradstreet
Welcome to My Garden…Please Enter
Because I am a gardener, seeing that new growth coming out of the ground gives me that extra excitement, push, and motivation to start new projects, get in the groove of solving problems and cleaning and organizing the old stuff that has been hanging around all winter.
What does it for you?
I remember when I was growing up, my mother would have to do her spring cleaning and every room and closet had to be turned upside down and gone through to clean and organize so that we started off the season in the right way. I don’t know if that is how many people greet Spring today, but when it comes to my business, and my painting, I do get that “Spring Fever” bug where I have to, not only clean, organize and sort out my office and studio, but try something new or go for some fresh new approach to creating my art.

I am not sure what it will be this year but I have been experimenting with some smaller paintings that aren’t a big stretch from my current, abstract, acrylic paintings but they are a little more free and playful. You don’t have to go far afield but I find one thing leads to another. That is the beauty of creating; the ideas are endless once begun.
Random Scribbles 1, 2 & 3
12″ X 12″ X 1.5″ Each • Acrylic on Canvas
Random Scribbles 1 Larger – 12″ X 12″ X 1.5″
So this is what I have playing with among other things. Naming them Random Scribbles for now. These abstract, acrylic paintings can be mixed and matched any way you want or used alone.
