My art endeavors have opened up a whole new world of opportunities to me and connected me with many great new friends in the process. The art has spoken. Communication without a word. If only the rest of life was so simple.
This new year will start tomorrow by putting paint on canvas for a brand new commission piece. I have before me a clean slate awaiting my best efforts, just like this new uncharted year ahead is waiting for me to decide what to make of it.
May 2010 be great for you. Clean your slate. Be positive. Give to others. Change the world.

I continued last night with the new train of thought - another spontaneous palette knife piece with rythm. Painting these small panels is really helping with my creative process and I enjoy doing these more every day.

This painting is inspired by photographer and artist Brad Rickerby's shots of city scenes at night. One photo on his site is of a street in China at night with the lights reflecting in the wet pavement. His photo is titled Nanjong Road Rain and has a blurred effect giving an abstract feel that I really liked.

I've had this piece up on the main website for a while, but I wanted to show it after mounting the pieces up in this floating format. It really gave the piece some dimension since the art is hovering about 1/4'' above the black panel. Each panel is 1/2'' thick wood. I will post another similar piece tomorrow.
