Blush - I wanted to paint a feeling. Think about the feeling you had with the first kiss. It is a Blush of emotion - delicate and sweet. It is rich with anticipation and chemistry; full of hope and happiness. It is almost like the sigh you have after he is gone and you have closed your door. Ah!
Can you feel it? Can you see it in my painting? It is warm and wonderful - and would be lovely in a home.
I recently heard a discussion that there is no where for abstracts to go - but I disagree. It is like saying there should be no new love songs! There is always a slightly different interpretation of feelings which we enjoy. I hope you like mine!

Please join me in my art journey through my blog. I share my thoughts, techniques, and general life philosophy. Abstracts are great for capturing feeling without the entrapments of subjects. I am working on one of the feeling you get when you walk in the forest on a sunny afternoon. All those rich browns and greens in with the cool, turquoise brook. Come check it out!
