Last year I spent ten months painting three ornamental ceilings in the grotesque style (a portion of one of the ceilings I painted is pictured below).
Below, you can see me painting a portion of one of the other ceilings.
Below, another of the three ceilings I designed and painted in 2012.
After this particular job finished up, I had enough funds in my savings to set aside time to experiment in the studio creating abstract art full time (just to see how it felt). I have always painted abstract canvases for my own pleasure. Most of my friends have at least one painting that I have needed to find a home for once I ran out of wall space at my own home. It has been so fulfilling to be able to make a living painting for so long now. But I've always been curious as to what it would be like to paint abstract canvases full-time, and now I have the opportunity to discover if it is how I think it would be.
So, this is how I came to the decision to dedicate myself to canvas art. This is my first time blogging and I thought it a good idea to share the journey to wherever painting goes for me from this point forward.
I don't believe I'll ever leave ornamental work completely, but
let's just see what happens, shall we?
