Mask: Unknown Artist
Another acrylic painting that I love. This is just so much fun, and it is prayer. I find myself praying spontaneously while doing these painting and writing the prayers into the images. The words just become integrated into the texture. Since I often pray "in tongues" I find myself making marks like "writing in tongues". Gary Wilson spoke about doing this in his art years ago and now I find myself doing it. I like that it is all so spontaneous. I like just almost everything about this painting. I like the colors, but at times I think they are a little acidic or unsophisticated, but at other times I think it suits the subject and "mood" of the painting.
