I’m constantly updating my website and the artwork that I have available for collection. However, what is constantly updated almost on a daily basis is my Instagram @shiloratner. It’s fun to share in-progress paintings and thoughts on artworks on that platform. However, there are quite a few places to collect original artwork.
This painting has been hanging out in the corner of my studio waiting for me to turn my attention back to it. After a day away from the studio I could really look at this piece with a fresh perspective and I just knew this week I was going to finish it. For this painting, I played with depth in the layering and with the overall energy in the linework. “Hypnotic Awakening”, 48” x 60”, Acrylic paint on canvas.
This geometric abstract painting is one that was inspired by my self-study of the Aztec culture. There is an interesting creation story about the Sun and the Moon which spurred the development of this painting. I find learning about other cultures helps broaden your perspective on the world.
Last year had a mix of wow moments and some very sad moments. 2020, was a year like no other. With a year like no other, I have strengthened my gratitude practice and learned to take a bit more care of myself.
I feel hopeful about the future even in the midst of all this chaos. I’m looking at this new year as a new beginning. We may not be able to turn back but we can turn towards something new. Happy New Year my friends 🌈.
May 2021 be filled with happiness, endless creativity, and abundance. ☮️ .
