My idea for this painting was to do an abstract impression of autumn leaves with sunlight. I seek to incorporate my love of nature and spirituality into my artwork. I am branching out into putting my artwork on merchandise now. I particularly think that the tote bags, pillows and mugs are really great for this particular piece. I want to but some myself. I think I will start off with the mug.
Art prints, tote bags, home decor, mugs and more by Ellen Eschwege
I have been away for a long time and now I am where I can create again.
Setting up the studio yesterday was a step back toward being myself. I have
so many ideas for painting that it is hard to know where to start. I am inspired by many things. Nature is probably at the top of the list. I love doing abstracts but I want to explore some new territory. Portraits interest me a great deal. This painting is a visionary piece I did a few years ago. It is called Earth Spirit. More to come soon.
I thought this article was also noteworthy. He has some valid points about people’s attitude toward art today. My feelings arethat taking time to look at and understand art is like stopping and smelling the roses. People need to take time to digest art, question it, feel it, etc. Are people geared to stop and consider art in this fast food, digitally geared world?
