Creating ArtDesigns from my Original Artwork has become Addictive!

The act of making art is complicated, but I found a fantastic method to uncomplicate the process that has struck a chord within me. I follow the idea that Abraham Hicks– one of my favorite guru’s – has instilled in my brain. Go with the flow, go downstream!

Some time ago (last year) I lost my job and began this fantastic journey back to my artistic soul, for which I sputtered and spattered along with, for many a moon. After deep contemplation – as we all do when bad things happen – I made a vow to focus as an artist, solely on my artistic path. At first this was uncomplicated, I picked up my pastels and went to town. Boom! The magic happened. I was going with the flow, going downstream. Before I knew it, I went through all my art supplies and had a small fun new collection of artwork. I was back on deck, flying high on my artistic horse.

Until…

I had no more supplies and no more money. Crap. Now what, I thought. So as misery set in once again, I took to my iphone and searched. I searched and searched some more. Then I came across the Layout App from instagram in my Apple store. Simple? Yes, but, oh how the lightbulb went off in my brain!

I started playing around with this tool and creating what I call ArtDesigns, using the photo’s I had of my original paintings and pastels. I came back to my artistic flow once again, but this time it was almost too simple.  This original oil pastel is called “Bowing Down to the Universe”Bowing Down to the Universe.jpg

Of course, because it was so simple, I questioned the legitimacy of this tool. I was so snobbish with myself, I almost failed to see the sheer beauty in it. Solution! duh… and it is free, fun, easy and a whole- lot- less- messy. The clean up has always been my least favorite with painting.

I am making some interesting abstractions and designs using my original artwork as a base. 

The Universe Hovers Above #1

This ArtDesign is called “The Universe Hovers Above #1”,  it was created in the layout App from my original acrylic painting (below). This painting was created originally from my oil pastel, which is the very first piece in this series.

The process allows my desire to work fast and clean and abstractly to flourish – with a feeling of satisfaction and an excitement to create more.

The Universe Hovers Above #2

This ArtDesign is called “The Universe Hovers Above #2” and below you will see a patterned abstract – almost non-objective piece – called “The Universe Emanates”

I am satisfied with this little collection for now, however, don’t be surprised if I expand on it. That is why we are all on this beautiful planet – to expand.
