Hey's Loren here. I want to share some news about my new seascape series, closing up my still life show and some thoughts about whats been going on around here.

 Still life show has come down this past week and I am feeling a little sad about the ending of the event.  I always feel so optimistic and full of energy when I begin a new venture.  Sometimes when I end or wrap up an event, I feel a little blue about closing up the experience..Reflecting on my show, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to share my work with the public and exhibit at Christopher's.  I am not so sure if this is really the venue for my work to reach enough buyers,collectors and so on.  But it is however a great stepping stone to moving into a gallery.  It has created a more comfortable state of mind for me to reaching higher and greater than I thought I ever could. So, I can't say that it was a negative experience in any way, just the opposite.I will say it was a unique one.

After this exhibition and the dull feeling I have,I find that this is when I need to throw myself into a new experience so I loose that numbing sensation that I have when something ends.  I don't know why I feel this way.  I think it is what it is and I recognize it now and just go with the flow that my journey takes me.  it has taken me to seascapes again.

This new series of seascapes are so exciting for me because they are so freeing and energy releasing.  They are mostly on thick 1/8 inch matte board and are painted on long oddly shapes pieces. They require my full attention to complete one piece.  There is no room for mistakes or delaying the process since I am painting in acrylics and it dries really fast. on matte board.  To capture my message, I swoop the paint over the board really fast and pick up various shades of blues then blending the shades to create the effects of light, sky and sea.  I love love this process of painting like this.  It suits me well.
Well, that's a wrap up for this post.  Leave a comment if you would like to.  Cheers,  Loren
