"Escape to Dreamworld"
36''x36''x1.5'' Acrylic on Canvas
Life has been somewhat stressful lately, so I have been trying to escape late in the evenings with my art. Self-imposed art therapy. As this painting took form, I imagined traveling through a different time and space, escaping if only for a brief period of time.
The funny thing is...the painting actually fought me in the first stages. I went to bed that night a little frustrated with it. The next evening I started repainting areas, blending and softening until it started to feel more soothing. I guess the night of rest took me to a place that I could envision in the next painting session.
Ahhhh...I feel much better.
