Telling a story without words

Sometimes when I begin a painting I have a clear picture of how it is “supposed” to turn out.  Honestly, very few have turned out the way I have envisioned and that is probably a good thing.  Imagery and symbolism are important for me so I include them as often as I can in my paintings.  Backyard party is a culmination of symbols from my childhood and found is more dream like symbols that kept popping up in my head. Enjoy~

These paintings emerged from pure abstraction. So much fun to figure out the end result. I loved scratching into the paint and adding variables that didn’t match.

Ocean Storms

Two more paintings of an abstract ocean storm.  These started out as pure abstraction and I had no idea how they would play out. I was pleased with the outcome.

We Play

Posted in Paintings with tags , , , , , , on June 23, 2012 by Amy Floyd Blog

I finally got to take a painting class all for just ME.  I was the student this time and I really enjoyed the feeling of being taught while being surrounded by creative people.  This environment helped me see things from a student’s perspective since I am always the teacher. The students might be listening, but I realized they are half listening because they must be thinking what I was thinking…..give me my paintbrush!! I took a collage composition class with John and Eli Milan at their studio in San Tan Valley with a good friend of mine. We got to paint side by side and critique each others art. I love my piece and wanted to take my friend’s painting home. My painting still has a few issues but I still love it. I was able to incorporate my childrens’ artwork with some homework they have done in the past.  I titled this piece “We Play” from my daughter’s spelling list I used. I should be in my studio making more but the heat is wiping me out. More later.
