Abstract Expression

IMG_1712

Today’s Photo Challenge is Express Yourself. Despite the fact that I consider a “photo challenge” an exercise in photography, my idea for this post just kept getting stuck on painting. When I paint something like this abstract bit I did, I feel like I’m freely expressing something of myself.

It’s a great feeling. Doesn’t mean it makes a great painting, but the feeling is the reason I paint. When I show you the painting, I’m showing the feeling. Or at least trying to.

And the painting may make you feel something. Probably something different than the feeling I had while painting. It’s a flawed form of communication.

But every now and then, when it works, it’s perfect.
