My work is abstract.  Wikipedia says abstract art uses visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.  For me creating art from an emotional place can be a good thing, but the downside of working without a plan is that I sometimes wind up with too much intensity in my work.  I tone down some areas to make places for the eye to rest.  I am learning that my art is a process and what I create may not be perfect.  I try to accept this and continue to put my work out anyway, knowing that some people will not understand it.  Some see what I see, and that is enough. This feeds my passion to do more.
