This is the first painting in my “Rage Painting” series in which I painted a blue peony in fast, aggressive strokes. In each painting I chose to use a very limited pallet and just using the white of the canvas, light washes, and thick layers of paint to achieve the tonal values.
Very little planning was involved in creating these pieces. Although the person or situation that inspired the rage will remain a mystery to the viewer, rest assured they are “dealt” with mentally via hypothetical conversations (and generally just fantasizing about telling that person off). The goal is to turn those negative feelings into something beautiful.
THIS IS TOTALLY NORMAL AND HEALTHY!
While the original is still for sale, high quality Giclée prints are available here.
