Abstraction

Abstraction is often the most definite form for the intangible thing in myself that I can clarify in paint. . . I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way– things I had words for.Georgia O’Keeffe


I want to think some wordless thoughts today. There is a joy I find in pure images, even the frightening or grotesque, that I cannot reach with words. Words are only one way to communicate, and often I often break and mangle the thoughts and ideas as I try to force them into word boxes that are unable to hold them.
