painting of person in motion

Movement can be such a loaded topic. For this image I was looking to capture that tension, am I walking, starting to run, leaning into the future? Am I in a cloud of energy, or a brewing storm?

Creating images on an edge

Most of the images I have been painting are for new card decks in the upcoming Exploring My Options series. They are designed to spark insight, so I’m not looking to convey a specific meaning, but rather imply something that the viewer can respond to in multiple ways.

I’m looking to capture an edge, an ambivalence. The same is true for the photographs in my current products, but with painting, I can increase and play with this edge in different ways. Things like the people can be generic, I can create a position that isn’t quite accurate and therefor is seen differently by each person.

The longer I watch people respond to images, the more I understand how true this quote really is.

We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.

creative every dayEach time I meet someone, I bring all my experiences to the encounter, and they bring theirs. Simple idea. As I see differing perceptions play out in sessions over and over, my understanding of how profoundly this affects our everyday encounters deepens. If I can greet the differences with curiosity, I have an opportunity to grow and learn.

I like to hear your comments and stay in touch.

I’m working on a new series of tools for personal and professional development. To be the first to know about them and introductory specials, sign up to be on the Early Explorer list.
