First Things First
When I took my first class in “Abstract,” I was instructed by the teacher Julie Bernstein Engelmann, to think of a title before putting any paint down on the canvas. That is how Abundance came about. I wanted to create a contemporary expressive painting that when folks looked at it, they would say, wow! I see a richness and a fullness in this painting that somehow feels like an opening – welcoming me into it!”
Bringing inspiration to life in creating Sedona art is one of the surprising thrills of being a Sedona artist. To see abstract art, look at the painting as a space that is not just a 2-dimensional piece of art, but that has depth. Look at the multiple layers of dimension. Some areas take you on a journey into the painting, some parts come forward, giving you a feel of movement and flow, and that is what art is all about. Inspired is what happens to me daily, and I’m very grateful to be living here in this magical place called Sedona!
Sedona Landscape Paintings
As you can tell, this is not a typical contemporary Sedona Landscape Painting, of which I create many Sedona Art Prints. I think they call this “Artistic License!”
Grateful for Abundance
I’m thankful to have found an art form with which I so profoundly resonate. As an abstract artist, I am experiencing new-found freedom and confidence to explore concepts, like Abundance, from a feeling and knowing perspective rather than a logical, linear perspective, which, for me, is a game-changer. This shift in attitude has enhanced not only my creative, artistic eye but also my approach to Life.
After all, Art is Art…and Everything else is Everything else!
