An Abstract on Some Beautiful Abstraction

What, ho!? Two blogs in one day? Impossible! To what do I owe this unusual event?

To my un-contained excitement about my latest project, I say.

I promised you all a look-see at the art show poster I was working on, so here it is, earlier than expected. I really enjoyed working on this piece, particularly because I enjoy the artist's work so much. I'm not usually one for abstraction, but there's something about Sylvea Johnson's paintings that really speak to me. Her use of color and symbolism are fantastic - it's almost like graffiti, but not as harsh - so much more flowing and beautiful. I still haven't quite placed it, and that in itself is interesting to me.

I encourage everyone to try to make it to the opening of "Dreams and Reflections"on May 15th from 6:30-8 p.m. at Aryaloka Buddhist Center. Should be a fun time, and you'll get to see some great work in person. If you'd like to learn more about the artist, here's a link to her profile on Artbreak.
