This is the finished painting (scanned portion).

When I finally wrapped my brain around this final painting, it reminded me of Usain Bolt and how I felt watching such a fantastic runner make history! The Summer Olympics were amazing!

This mixed media painting was made with acrylic ink, acrylic paint, and india ink on 9″ × 12″ Sennelier 300 lb watercolor paper.

What a mess I made with this one making this piece! OMGoodness!

Oh well, I turned it upside down and saw a stick person sprinting… go figure. This may get worked on some more… or I may toss it in a pile to be cut up for book marks or something. Ugh!

Stage 3:
I’ve added the 3rd layer of color and the final layer of texture… needless to say (as with most of my abstracts, I really can’t name them until I’m done because I never really know where I’ll end up. Today, it was rainy and damp here and my body ached so everything turned out to reflect that discomfort… or so I think. None of the names I chose for the original WIPs are working out. Ha! :)


Here’s the progression:
On second thought, the progression is too embarrassing at this point. :( They may all three get deleted. :)


acrylic, ink, summer joy, greenery, hope, faith, happiness, jubilation, joy, joyful, reflections, understanding, vibrant, abstract, african american art, sunny day, color, colorful, art therapy, grief therapy, survivor, creative, creativity, inspiration, celebration, runner, sprinting, running, olympics, sprinter, unique

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.
