Change in progress

9.5′ x 10.5′, originally uploaded by leyaevelyn.

This is a photo of the second 9.5′ x 10.5′ painting. It’s still a work in progress, so this only gives a hint of what is going through my mind/hands. Even I don’t know how it will end up. I just know the painting process is different, again.

You can see just how far up I can reach. The top part is not resolved; I need to have the painting flipped upside down to work on the top. Even the ladder I use isn’t tall enough. Then sometimes, turning it, gives me new ideas about how to work with the painting.

My work took on a big change a little over a year ago. I keep wondering, why again, why now. But I can’t stop it. And don’t want to. Aaron commented that I seem to have gone from making “statements” to being more lyrical, telling a story. I think he is right, but it still is a bit confusing for me.

The story is not finished yet. Not at all.

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.
