My abstract paintings are almost always a combination of many types of paints; acrylic, oil, water as well as graphite and oil pastels. I often scribble into my works with different inks, chalks, graphite/charcoal pencils,etc.. really anything that I can get my hands on is free game when I am creating.
The great majority of my abstract art pieces are titled from song titles or song lyrics. It is always a lyric or title of a song that I am listening to while creating that just stands out to me and takes over as the 'theme' for the basis of my creation. Many times a lyric will hit me in the midst of painting and I will find myself hitting the 'replay' over and over until the completion of the painting. Other times I seem to paint almost in a dream like state and the title of the painting is chosen as I am just feeling my painting coming to an end. As I feel the end of the painting drawing near I often choose a lyric that strikes me in whatever song I am listening to as the painting is being finished.
I do not create without music. It is the one thing that is a constant in my studio. It is probably the only thing that is a constant in my studio. When I am painting one of my original abstract paintings it is a result of simply 'doing' not thinking. It is an automatic process for me.. like breathing.
