I Like your Old Stuff better than your New Stuff...


At the beginning of 2014 I had a breakdown, following the breakup of a long term relationship.  I was devastated and particularly with how this affected by art practice.  In short, I could not make any art.  When I eventually picked up a paintbrush again, I wanted to do something completely different.  I felt like the old person I was was gone and I felt so far removed from my old style, I could not go back to it.  Hence my adventure into abstract art. 

Lately, I feel like my old style is calling me back again.  My interest in abstract art is fading. Maybe this is healing.  I am listening.

Here are some of my artworks pre-2014 in what I call my old style.
