Hi Harmony,

Thank you for sharing your acrylic paintings with us!  I like what you have going on in these paintings.  The portrait painting seems to tell a story.  The butterflies are a nice touch. 

The abstract is also compelling.  The composition is pleasing and I like the variation of detailed areas and more open areas.

What were you aiming to accomplish with these paintings?

Good question! When i paint i just paint and paint and paint. It has been a habit of mine just to paint what is inside of me.(sometimes a good habit sometimes not so good) I rarely have a plan. But if i really have to think about what I was trying to accomplish, i think its; liking what i see,was it what i imagined....or does it speak....and honestly do others like it or feel it.
Purple insanity------women with butterflies, i was playing with texture and color, unfortunately the photo does not do the dark background justice and the hair is full of texture.

Mothers love-----Silloutte of woman holding baby, hair and water wrapping holding. YES i love to contrast complexity with simplicity! and I LOVB smooth lines

I like your sense of symbols -- using the butterflies and of course the abstract. The yellow glow around the woman which then transforms into the strong-lined butterflies is really effective.mmm

I like the abstract the best, like you I  just paint, sometimes I start with a plan but my heart takes over and something else comes out. That is who art is suppose to be, and I no longer create art I think others will like. I create for me and if y'all like it then cool, if not my feelings on them won't change (:
