It's all good!

Well, I may not be finished but the panic is over!  I am back to loving the elements of this painting and there is a lot more depth and interest now.  The blue reads like a light on my monitor whereas in person it reads more as a dark.

Tonya: Does it matter whether the work is "finished" or not? I find that I am almost never satisfied with the art that I create. But that just creates the energy to go on to the next piece! Thanks for following my blog.

Hi Atul, welcome! Yes, it matters to me if the work is not finished because there is an unease with each piece until I reach a satisfaction point. It is an uncomfortable anxiety until I get the work to a place where it's appealing to my senses. I guess that doesn't have to be a finished place just a place where I can leave it alone. Especially if I have done something that I particularly don't like to a piece I thought was coming along okay before hand. Everyone has their quirks i guess! Thanks for your comment.

Gosto do azul, dá uma sutileza a obra, ao mesmo tempo que a torna forte e expressiva.
Gosto do aspecto de descuido proposital do seu trabalho.

Feliz Ano Novo, cheio de criações!

It's absolutely fantastic Tonya!!! You did terrific work!
I never ever know if i'm finished..... I just move on..lol!

Marcio,Obrigado! Eu gosto de azul também, mas não é tão forte como pessoa na Internet. É mais escuro. Estou feliz com a direção da pintura até o momento. Obrigado por tomar o tempo para comentar sobre a minha pintura!

Manon, thanks for the kind support! You are such a sweetie! I think it is at a point that I can leave it for now.

There seems to be more texture in this rendition and I find that very interesting!

Tonya, I like the feeling of this abstract of yours. I love looking at abstract paintings and seeing interesting hidden shapes in them. I see one in this painting -
a dark area, upper right side ... it's looking at me ... can you see it?

It's great to see beautiful art that can't be copied, duplicated, or made with a camera...imagination only!

Tonya Vollertsen said...

Hi Sheila, thanks for the input. Lots of texture, for sure! You've done some really interesting art lately! Love the dog!

Rosalie, I hadn't noticed that but it is one fun part of abstracts, everyone sees something different. Really enjoying your new paintings!

Hey Nick, I agree, it is great to see that and I could definitely say it about your new Watercolor! Thanks for dropping in.
