I usually like to leave the interpreting of my abstracts to the viewer, allowing a personal response. This painting was completed in several more sessions than I ordinarily take. In the first phase of it I saw a tree beginning to emerge and it was at this point that I felt it was completed. Yet... the more I looked at it I just wasn't totally satisfied. It was at the point of needing to take a risk that would either make it or it would become something else. Either way... you've got to believe it will work and take the plunge.
That was when I went back into the painting with layering and before I knew it I was into the circles.
Life is always in a state of growing. Sometimes there are stages of what seem like no growth, but those are needed into for the new growth to occur. Being an artist is a lot like that as well. It can be frustrating when you hit those times where it feels like nothing is happening. I was there recently. In fact, I felt like I had lost my creativity and was finished with painting. I am encouraged from what I hear from this painting. It speaks to me about being patient, listening, abiding and believing that the Creator of creativity is always at work. This creativity like a circle has no end.
