Insomnia: A poem written about this painting by author/poet Sheridan Bushnell
No room for sleep here.
Bubbling Creativity invites you
To remain awake,
Visit dreams’ storehouse of magic,
Eyes wide open, heart alert,
Ever ready to experience wonder!
Original 8 x 10 in. acrylics on canvas. SOLD
Insomnia (the painting) started out as a complete failure in terms of how I had intended this painting to turn out. When things weren't going my way, in frustration I grabbed my palette knife and swiped it several times through the paint. It was a mess. It was late, so I left the ruined painting alone until morning. Overnight, the mixing of all the paint layers by my swiping, caused blobs from the bottom layers to pop to the surface like bubbles. I thought, "This is just what I feel like at 3 a.m., tired but wide awake, brain whirling around countless thoughts!" And so Insomnia named itself and was saved from the "Discards" pile!
Insomnia was chosen by writer/poet Sheridan Bushnell as her subject for Vision and Voice, an annual event at The Joyful Jewel gallery, when writers compose poems or stories about art in the gallery that inspires them. Sheridan's words express perfectly the feel of the painting, and my own experience on sleepless nights!
Abstract acrylic paintings that can be whatever you want them to be! Most of my work begins with paint being poured onto my canvas. Then I tilt and turn it to make the paint move around the canvas. Fingers, a palette knife, and air blown onto the wet paint, create further movement and lively organic patterns. A fine brush at the end adds further details to each unique piece.
