Oil on Canvas
32" x 36"
This abstracted Pastel Landscape was a journey with a new impasto (thick-application) technique I was practicing, while I was also working on my ability to meditate during the painting process. My intention was to look at the blank canvas as an opportunity, rather than having expectations for a 'perfect' painting. I painted with presence and patience for the 'answer' of the painting to come to me. It was the first painting to usurp a mental 'blankness' from me, and I found the experience helpful and pushed me to continue with this introduction to making new works.
This painting is heavy and must be hung firmly on the wall with a minimum of two screws/fasteners.
