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 convinced me to continue with this introduction to making new works.
This painting is heavy and must be hung firmly on the wall or from the ceiling with a minimum of two screws/fasteners.
