This painting–which is part of my 30 in 30 series–might seem to be very different in some ways from what I have been doing for a the past several weeks. It certainly looks very different from the other paintings in that it has no vertical or horizontal marks. Instead of geometric shapes, this one is mostly composed of curves. On the other hand, I followed much the same process as I did in my other paintings, building up layers, allowing colors to mix and show through, and working in an intuitive way to balance color and shapes in an interesting way. So there are major similarities with what came before it.
I titled it “Eye and the Storm” because it slightly resembles pictures of hurricanes. At the same time, the “eye” could also be an animal eye, perhaps looking at the storm. But others likely see something else in it. That is what is interesting–and fun–about abstract art.
