Wow, very Jackson Pollock XD
Though, unlike Pollock, you give a deeper meaning to this action painting.
I think the title truly makes this piece perfect.

I don't get people who don't care about taking care of the enviroment. I think they are just lazy or mean-spirited.

Yes, and I think a lot of it is from convenience and how people are brought up. None of us are perfect but we can definitely do our share.

What is it abbout your paintings? I'm not sure.. I just LIKE em..
The Cheryberry Blue is irresistible, I guess ;)

you know, one thing I always wonder about? What are all the other artists doing with their original paintings/canvasses?
Do you have an ATELIER? ARTROOM? a LOFT? BASEMENT? SPECIAL ROOM?
Where do ytu keep your originals?


And are you like me.. at first.. JUST after finishing them.. you can't STAND to move them? Need to keep them close? Within sight and touch?
It takes a while before I can let a painting go to another room. And even longer before it dissapears outta view.

I wish I had lotsa money, thatn i wouldn't care, and would just have this huge room with nice lighting, and every time I finish something, I'd add it there. That way.. all of em get.. I dunno.. the attention they deserve (which sometimes is prob more in my head then anything else.. but.. I like it. They're important, to me.

Does that make sense at all?

That makes complete sense to me!! I actually just finished setting up my art room last weekend. I have everything hanging up. I have sold one but it was difficult parting with it. Another I gave away to my art. As for my Insomnia series I'm not sure I am going to sell the original. At least not right now. I think many of us feel like there is a part of us in our work that it's hard to give up. Then you have the other side of the spectrum, people who just do it for the money.
When I paint I tend to go into a trance like state. I'm so sensitive to my surroundings. I CANNOT work in front of others. It's very strange. I almost feel as if I'm being judged before I finish :faint:
Thank you so much for your ongoing support Louise. Not only do you make me laugh but you are so genuine. I cannot help but smile when I hear from you :hug:

awe.. thank you for your kind words :)
yeah, I hear you about being alone. I can't work in front of others either. Not cause I feel being judged, just cause they'd be a disturbance. Even if they'd be quiet, they'd still be.. "noise" hehe ;). I work best when I'm alone and undisturbed. Music helps. Tv does not, I can't stand tv noice in the background. I never have it on when I'm alone. Too much to do :lmao: :boogie:

a night sky with dancing stars in a foggy circle...the stars that lost their beams...or wings...or life...or dreams...red dreams painted in blue with greed...and here we want to save the planet...we band-aid the Earth with empty forests painted in blue ink sprayed from small planes...wishing that the kids playing around will get smart and educated if their heads change in blue...forget it...is not Avatar anymore.........
...i like the painting Cheryl...i can see a series already...

Thank you so much for your in depth comment Jon. I used the white to give this a complete separation from the universe. The minimal use of red was to keep in mind "this is just the beginning" I was hoping to get this done by earth day. But every days should be earth day :heart:
