The Unexpected Joy of Losing Your Balance

Posted on Jul 23, 2014 in Creativity

There are times when it seems there is an abstract painting calling out to me to give birth to it. Often I am too busy with course planning or other things in life to pay attention. This time I listened. I have for quite awhile noticed my dislike of the word "balance". It seems to me that balance in life fights against a passionate immersion into creativity. This painting is a celebration of the idea of leaving balance behind. Can you sense that in the painting? What do you think of this concept?
