Original acrylic painting on wood by Michel Keck. Artist signed on front and back.
It was a happy little accident, back in 2007, that led me to create this style of painting that became known as my Wish List Collection. I refer to this body of works as my energy paintings.
When I first started this series it was my eBay art selling days, and it was not uncommon for me to be working on 3 or 4 works at the same time. I had a freshly gessoed canvas next to where I was painting and paint from the painting I was working on fell into the freshly gessoed canvas next to the painting I was creating. I tried flinging the paint off the freshly gessoed canvas and what splatted to the floor was a wonderous design that had me immediately mesmerized.
I was so captivated by the rope of paint that was created from the force of flinging the paint that I knew in that instant I wanted to work to create paintings that would duplicate that splat. Viola.. my Wish List Collection was born! If you can capture what energy looks like via painting I believe it is my Wish List Collection.
