Inward



A couple years ago I had my abstracts at a gallery in Atlanta called Dalton Cowan which has since closed its door, but the owner is a friend of mine and she came upon some images of my work. It was so good to see these again, and timely, as I have been feeling the urge to paint abstractly again.

I plan to do so after I get this next book birthed [you'll be hearing a lot about that in the coming weeks]. I'm finding that making books- which I truly love- is like wearing yourself inside out. It exposes things.

Abstracts will let me go inward and explore for awhile, perhaps more in silence without the urge to add words. I can still share the paintings, but won't feel a need to tell you about them, you can do that for yourself which is really the beauty of abstract art.

You can see some more past abstract work here. It's the new website I created this month. The old site will be closed down once I get the domain transferred. I needed a change and I wanted the new site to feel like a book about my life here. And I finally put my old life of commercial illustration where it should be-as a foot note of the past.

Why thank you! When we first moved to the farm, the area was so foreign to me. Abstracts helped me get my bearings. Now I think I need to paint some for getting my bearings in other ways.

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
