Sucked in the vortex of life. My new abstract painting!

Sucked in the vortex of life

As “Sun among foliage” this one is brand new but was painted a few days before. I am including close ups so you can notice the brush strokes of the vortex itself & the movement of the palette knife around, which reveals a multitude of colours from an under layer representing life as being faithful to its bright cheerful miraculous entity even when it gets very hectic & eventful.

  1. It’s beautiful and intriguing!

  2. Beautiful! A lot of movement and I love the closeups of the palette knife paint strokes. To me this is such a strong connection to the artist as your touch is truly left behind.

    • Thanks a lot! It was a pleasure to receive such a beautifully analytic comment.
      I just did not understand when you wrote “this is such a strong connection to the artist as your touch is truly left behind.” if there’s a strong connection how can the touch be left behind?

      • For me when I literally see the paint strokes I see the artist and his/her connection from paint to the canvas. I believe the brush strokes left behind invoke a different type of emotion then a blended approach where the brush strokes are blended together for a smooth texture.

      • That is a beautiful way of seeing it, I never thought of it that way! I usually admire the instagramers (mine is, LIFE_PAINTINGS) who post amazing still life paintings that gives you the impression you could hold the object in your hands, one needs a lot of patience for that kind of detail but like you said it’s not the artists imprints or emotion you see…
        Thank you for taking your time for this pleasant exchange 🙂

      • My pleasure. I love art and the emotions!

  3. This is great and I really appreciate your explanation/interpretations as I try to ‘educate’ myself about art and the artistic process – thank you 🙂

    • That is so kind of you to say! I never thought twice when I wrote down the explanation, just did it so as to make it easier on the observer, thought my intentions might not always be that clear, it’s after all abstract & everyone can interpret it their own way 🙂
      Thanks for your likes & delightful comments!
