While I was into painting (20 odd years ago) I painted this … an explosion of colour on my base fave colour {green} [house paints on acrylic poster paint!]
I remember being a bit peeved I didn’t have a few more vibrant jewel like colours like red and orange and purple! but this was pretty cool I thought!

Then when I stood back & looked at it it reminded me of my mind in full swing! Wanting to go every-which-way all-at-once!
( No wonder people think I’m crazy! lol )

Thanks for checking out my visual art!

Chookas! ☼


visual, explosion, thoughts, mind

adgray is a writer and a poet
- telling stories all her life,
- writing them down once she learnt how
“Scribbling! Always scribling!”
… and no there was nothing to be done about it!
Her poetry came later when the gift found her to be a ZETE segue (Zographonic Extemporanious Treatise Ekphrasis)
At times she can go into a trance-like state as poetry flows through her to the page and screen
Thank you for coming to read my words! ~ adgray~

    HAHA – I thought it was a flower! perhaps your mind is flowering :)

  • Thanks …. It may have started as a hydrangea for my dad … he likes them but I think I gave up when I got carried away with the flicked bits that were actually put on with the edge of a knife and then the blue & black ones with a skewer lol
    Thanx for coming to look!

    WOW!!!!!!!!! AWESOME WORK!!!!! :D
    So, who’s been keeping her light hidden under the proverbial bushel, eh?
    Such stunning work. You are talented and gifted in so many amazing ways Alyssa!!!

    I adore the colours, the texture, the emotive impression it gives the viewer as well as your pointilist/Jackson Pollockesque style.
    Or on second thoughts, it is neither. It is adraysia or Alyssamism! lol!!!

    So, when can we see more such hidden gems???..xxxxOoOoXxXxXxooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    : )))))))))))))))))))))))))

  • LOL I told you I’m no photographer …. but said nothing about not being an artist! lol
    lol adraysia or alyssamism lol and they say I have bad spelling issues lol
    But that’s it for the hidden painting gems lol
    I have some craft work I could show but that’d be it! lol
    I am after all only a writer! lol
    Glad you like this though! :O)

    YAY!!!!!!! So glad you’ve got this up for sale!!!!!!!
    See, you have fans (and sales) springing out of the woodwork haha!
    Oh, and not painting in 20 years is no excuse…if I can dust my art off the locked and cobwebbed, dust laden shelves after about 30 years…than you most certainly can!!!!!!

    You’ll be amazed how good it feels to get your hands on some paint again and release your creativity.

    Which reminds me, yes…CREATIVE MIND!!!!

    I am sooooooooooo pleased for you.

    I’m glad my happiness makes you happy too!
