There Was an Answer

There Was an Answer, no. 6, originally uploaded by leyaevelyn.

I had a conversation with my friend Brian yesterday. Wondering why we keep going: are we crazy or just making art. It it becomes easy, it isn’t worth continuing. It’s the challenge that makes it interesting.

So now my work keeps changing. I picked up a couple of paintings from last summer’s exhibit at the Jo Beale Gallery. I hadn’t even remembered what they looked like. No photos; no memory. I was surprised. One of them is now very different. Reworked, or you might say, continued, more work on it. I’m really getting into the bold, heavy lines, lines that come and go, that overlap and redefine. It’s still challenging.

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.
