“Pinwheel Perspectives – Finding Your Voice”
Acrylic on Canvas – April 2017
For these four paintings, I had placed the color on all the canvases as they were laid out in a pinwheel shape. I then looking at the paint on the individual canvas tried to create four uniquely different paintings in one sitting.
This one has a bit of an abstract little mermaid feel.. or at least that’s what it reminds me of, as the little mermaid’s voice is trapped in a magic shell while she tries to fulfill her heart’s desires. I can resonate a bit with that. I spent from 5 years old until I was 22 singing – even to a semi-professional (getting paid to travel and sing) level. But at 22 the part of me that loved to sing – and my encouragement – my reason to do so died. I’ve tried to fill that part with art and painting and I feel that I’m able to express myself maybe more than I ever did organically and originally then when I sang because it’s my own ideas and thoughts and I always sang other people’s music. However, there’s a hole of sadness where I “lost” my voice. If only I could overcome that heartache and sing again.. Yet in the meantime, I’ve found my “voice” with paint. If I looked at all of these in sequence I guess this, the last of the pinwheel makes sense.. it’s a realization to take away from the canvas.
