Floral Obsession

This one took a while for me to finish. It’s on a rather large stretched canvas. The colours and abstract nature make me feel a whole lot less stressed. I enjoyed creating these florals. In case you haven’t noticed it’s one of my favourite subjects to paint!

As I continue my way through my art journey I’ve found that I’m leaning towards fantasy and abstract art more and more. Using my palette knives and leaving streaks down the painting seam to make me happy.

Colours and shapes with soft blends and harsh contrast are far more interesting for me than “perfect hyper realism”. Hyper realism is a thing, but definitely not my thing. It’s kind of like when I cook, I can’t ever follow a recipe to the letter. I always have to change it, modify it and make it my own. For better or worse!

So far it’s working out for me so I think I’ll keep allowing myself to evolve. Painting and sketching for me may just be a hobby, but I’m absolutely at peace when in the process. Hopefully it turns into more than just a hobby – that’s the goal anyway!
