I've obviously been into Green lately

Textured Contemporary Abstract Art: the Journey of Creation

Well my son is a year old now and I'm finding I have a bit more time to get back to the drawing board, so to speak. I've taken a year off from painting and I've missed it every second. Although... I've enjoyed so much caring for my son and watching him grow and develop into a little toddler (actually not a little toddler... he's very big for his age, 95th percentile).

Now that I'm painting again I'm really looking at my Abstract painting style at a much deeper level. I've been away for so long that it felt like I forgot my style, my technique. I didn't really though, it flowed right back out from the depths of my painting memory. But I have been hyper-aware now of each step I take in the creation of my abstract pieces. It is important for every painting or piece of Art to have a story and a bit of history. And it's important for the proprietor and/or consumer of that art to know its story.

That’s why today I want to share with you the process... the “Journey of Creation” of Chaanda’s Contemporary Abstract Art!!! I’m going to attempt to blog once a week about the process my paintings take, from beginning to end. We’ll talk about texture, color, composition, mood, and inspiration. I will talk about one feature at a time and put it in context with pictures of each stage of my process. I hope you will tune in each week as I create my newest piece of Art!

Create your Fate my friends!!!
