8 September 2010 sunrise, originally uploaded by leyaevelyn.

It seems the storm did more than just clear my head. It affected my work. The last few days have brought a clarity into my working process that was lacking for the past month or so. Granted I’ve been busy with lots of company and activities, mainly pleasurable, around the wedding. And maybe not having much studio time has been a fertile breeding ground for precision. I often find when I have been away from something I’ve usually been doing, like playing the piano or painting, that I come back with a surprising freshness.

The only problem here is that the photographs I had taken a couple of weeks ago will now need to be retaken. The work has changed considerably. All for the better.


About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
