Sometimes I do these wildly colored paintings, and feel like I'm cheating because they are just pure fun, but I love them.

Welcome to the pastel forum! It looks like you ARE cheating, having absolutely too much fun with such a colorful painting. :lol: Your swirls of color and restless turbulence evoke Van Gogh. Very nice!

Thanks, Blayne, it's good to be back. :wave:

Lisa, if you told me to paint something like this, it would be a pure agony and stress for me :) You are definitely not cheating, if this is your style and it makes you happy, it's great!

Wow! Electric! I wish I'd thought of this. :lol: Let's see more, please.

Nick, that's so funny to me, as I said, to me it's pure joy. I'm glad we're all so different. Thanks Karen!

I am nervous, just looking at it :D Yeah, "electric" is the world.

Nick, it's a really large painting, so maybe it wouldn't be so scary to you in person. The jagged, electric lines sort of flatten out from a distance. :) Thankfully, the buyer loves it, so it connects with someone. I'll say again, I really love the way there is room for all of us as artists. I was talking with my son today about how we are each uniquely formed, and our perspective as artists will reflect that. We all connect on different levels, and all speak unique languages. :grouphug:
I was sorting pastels today in prep for my residency and am getting sooooooo excited! Thanks again for the feedback, everyone!:wave: (okay, I'm getting out of hand with these emoticons!!! :cool: )

Love this!

Oh this is fun! It has a lot of dimension, reminds me of a turbulent seascape with deep swells and big dancing clouds, lots of motion, in more somber colors it'd be a storm at sea with lightning. In these colors it's more a delightful blaze of cheer, like the wild emotions at the height of a good party. Concentrated ecstatic fun! I love it. I can't decide if it's abstract or surreal because the forms realy are those of the seascape - but it's a sea of joyous feeling, not water, in a gale of laughter.

Turbulent is exactly the first word that popped into my head! This is pure energy! Electric and fun! I love it!!

I love the idea and such vibration and movement well done!

A wonderful scene in which we all see different things....I see ribbon dancers...but wait ~ they must have left the format! Dang!!!
But really, I love IT!

Terrific energy and color! It looks as it it would be fun to paint, and just the way it should be-

I love how this makes me feel ... excessively happy, makes me want to dance and sing! (I can't do either well) LOL
