Being Touchy or Touching Lives

Greek 81 40x30 $2700

A couple of weeks ago, I could have been touchy when some people came into my studio/gallery and made fun and mocked my abstract art. I became an abstract artist when physically  I couldn’t do work on an easel anymore.  Without perspective of upright canvas and landscape work I moved to painting flat on a high table. That is when I discovered my heartfelt work of doing abstract.  I feel so joyful when doing my art.  That is why it was such a shock when these people came in and were so insulting.  At first, I started to be defensive, a natural response.  But then I realized  when I looked at the painting of mine about God and the Trinity (at the right in Greek 81 is God) that I needed to turn the other cheek.  I needed to show them what my art was all about to me. Maybe they got it or not. They did quiet down some.  But I did expose them to something about peace and joy and love.  I don’t

have to be touchy but I do have to touch lives.

  1. Bravo Lori! Not everyone understands the concept and difficulty of abstract art. It is obvious that you paint from the love in your heart and soul. One of my beliefs in creating abstract art is with painting from that deep instinctual place within my soul, I am passing on the light and love that is available to all with the eyes to fully see and interprete. Your work is beautiful!
