… I have vague
Of intelligent flowers.
I cannot say
If their roots
Are in the ground
Or in the air …

Quick note: I am in the process of resurrecting my galleries.
Click on the “☛ Gallery!” in the menu running across the top of this page to find the new Vague Portraits Gallery in the listing.
The main tab drops down to allow you to choose between sixteen live galleries: Scatterlings©, a Scatterlings© Minis, Paintings on Canvas, Perspective Renderings, Fresh Perspectives, Acrylics + Mixed Media, Vague Portraits, Pointillism/Stippling, Altered Paint-By-Number, Illuminated Tiles -Messengers, Illuminated Tiles – Kells, Illuminated Tiles – Strange Blooms, ATCs, ACEOs – Two Sided, ATCs, ACEOS – One Sided, Prints, Available, and the Seasonal Tags; Two-Sided Gallery
Additional listed galleries will be added while I continue dusting each category. The next galleries will be the return of an “Otherly – Pastels Gallery.”
Vague Portraits is a collection of self-directed abstract portraits; covering the middle ground between vibrant fragmentary bodies to strange abstract associations – some almost cartoonish.
Regardless of medium each loose portrait (mostly pastel, some time acrylic or marker) begins on paper and evolves there in a free-form manner. Each portrait is imaginary, so technically incorrect and distorted. Using fearless, uninhibited painterly strokes a face bursts from the canvas; spirited and wild in form and shape.
