When I began abstracts, something that emerged after simplifying my landscapes, I decided I should paint the original dream colors. I entitled the painting Inspired Dream posted below. It was exhilarating to paint! I started using the palette knife, painting wildly and energetically. Was so much fun! I was in the ZONE. Clearly a part of me or my angelic/light being guides knew I would one day be painting abstracts.
So I asked my angels for artistic inspiration to continue this series I jokingly refer to as "Rothko on steroids." I dreamed this new color combo (top image), brilliant teal surrounded by orange that darkened to a deep taupe and then dark brown around the edges. Emerald green is the color of archangel Raphael who is known as a healer, and bronze is the color of archangel Gabriel, known for inspiring artists. Woohoo. LOVE being in sync with the universe.
