When I complete an abstract painting, I’m often faced with an interesting conundrum. Which side is “Up”? I know how I painted it – so that’s the top, right? But maybe it looks better upside down or in portrait rather than landscape orientation. I turn it and turn it. I have even had my works framed with wire runnning both ways so whoever buys it can decide how THEY like it. Anyway my latest painting is one of those.
This painting is my comment on the uncertainty we have in our lives – on the events, happenings and situations we cannot control. I am trying to express the discomfort and fear we feel when we have no ability to say “No! Stop!”. And, obviously I am still thinking about blood and the role it is playing in Ken’s treatment. Thinking about the good days and the bad days. Now my confusion…here is the painting upside down.
Oh no, I like it is this way too. Which do you like better? Please give me your opinion!
