Universe – Part 1

This is an abstract picture of the universe. It deals with textured acrylic paint and the idea of the universe being connected. I am influenced in my abstract art by Jack Bush (a Canadian Artist) and Lawren Harris of the Canadian Group of Seven.

Broken Down

Broken Down

I took this photo because I like the broken down shed in the back.  It may have been a barn but it is not traditional looking as the big, red old barns do.  The attention of the photo starts with the fence and then takes you to the old shed.  Even the wheat grabs your attention along with the fence.  There are so many wonderful old buildings that are still standing and it makes you question what life was like when the farm was a family home with the vibrant pursuit of being a farmer.

Profile Face in Tree

I took this photo of the inside of a Californian Redwood tree and I found it remarkable to see the profile of a face.  It is a strong side view of a face with a forehead, an eye, nose and chin going down into a neck.  Can you see the image in the wood?

It is gnarled and old yet somehow very strong as a male figure.  I enjoy the browns, greens and other hues found in the wood. As well, I think the moss near the bottom of the face is an incredible green neon shade which is amazing to me because it naturally occurs in nature.

Green Moss

It has been awhile since I have loaded up some photos and I must say that it feels as if a part of my soul has been missing out.

Here is an image of green moss found on the famous redwood trees of Muir Woods near San Francisco.  These trees are part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Centre on the Pacific Coast.  According to Wikipedia, “Before the logging industry came to California, there were an estimated 2 million acres (8,000 km2) of old growth forest containing redwoods growing in a narrow strip along the coast.”  Many of the trees have disappeared except for a small section of these redwood trees that were set aside by William and Elizabeth Kent.

Morphology – Abstract Painting by Mary Mikawoz

Morphology

This is an Abstract Acrylic painting of mine that represents “Morphing.” If I look at it from a Buddhist point of view, it represents the idea of suffering with The Four Noble Truths and how it may be dealt with, in terms of the Eightfold Noble Paths. If I look at it from a point of view of Hinduism it reminds me of Maya and how it may represent destruction as a necessary component of creation and an ever continuing change or re-creation. From a Christian point of view, it reminds me of the Seven Deadly Sins: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride. From a Nature and Earth perspective, it reminds me of the forces of nature everything from a raging forest fire, to a tornado, to a hurricane, to a tsunami, to flood waters to a blizzard forming in a winter’s storm and all powerful forces in between. From an Imaginary or Fantasy point of view, it can be visualized as a Sea Monster streaming through mighty white waters or an evil Dragon flying through the aethers. I hope you enjoy the painting and find positive meaning in it. To me, the filaments of green represent the beginnings of “forgiveness” and potential change in all respects and meanings.

Lush Green Forest

Isn’t there something so magical about being in a beautiful forest?  There is such quiet and solitude, such incredible beauty.  I took this photo because of the lush green moss on the trees that enhance the brown bark and fallen leaves.  I look at the photograph and dream of hiking through such beauty.

Sprouting Seed 2

This is the second abstract painting in the set of two called Sprouting Seed.  As indicated before, it is open to your interpretation.  There are similarities to the first one but there are definitely variations to the other.  What can you see as basic differences between the first one to the second painting?

Sprouting Seed 1

This is an abstract painting which is open to your interpretation. For me, there is specific meaning; however, I wonder what you can see in it. It has been put together with acrylic paints and other mixed media by hand. This is the first of two paintings in a set.
