It's kind of fun to play with some new things, and the last two paintings I have done included gears! I like the way they look on a canvas. It makes me think about time passing and the mechanics of things working together. Here is a close up of those lovely gears. Playing with texture has become a hobby of mine. I love it when a painting makes you want to reach out and touch it. If there is enough texture, I think it draws the viewer in… makes you want to just graze the top of it with your fingertips. This next piece also features some gears, and it got me to thinking about how our minds work. How the gears in our minds go round and round. We can gear up for good thoughts and great lives. Or we can gear down for depressing thoughts and loose the joy in life. I certainly prefer the former! And that is what this piece is all about. These are the thoughts I hope that inhabit your mind!
And of course, the close up for you! Makes you want to reach out and touch - right? Both of these pieces are available for sale. Just click the links on the pictures to find them. I wish you a fabulous day and hope that the gears in your life are all turning in the right direction!!
