Here are some pictures of some artwork that I did the week after Christmas after wrapping up the holiday and finding some *New Year* time to paint.
Below is a picture of a very quick and loose sketch I did in my sketchbook. For the sketch I imagined a figure and formed a posture thinking that if I painted it, I would fill the figure in with color the way that I did in my painting that I later created.
Below is a picture of my painting that followed my sketchbook image above. I called it "Facing 2020 in 12 Streams".
After filling in the figure with color, the rest of the canvas beyond the abstract profile became a continuation of more hand painted designs and forms that I came up with to fill the whole square canvas.
Post Share Update ~ August 31, 2020 Reflection:
I did this painting the week after Christmas with the feeling that the new year was going to shine new light on new energies, though at the time I had never heard of the word ‘coronavirus’ ( ...but I had enjoyed quite a few Coronas with a fresh slice of lime. )
This Monday morning marks the last day of August and the completion of two-thirds of 2020. ~ May the final third of 2020 bring less conflict and despair and more peace and hope in the country and our world. #2020 with - Tides of Eternity Art by Chrissy Breslin Schroeder

I am a 'self-taught' artist who can hardly remember a day when I wasn't in the process of creating something... Thanks for visiting my site where I can share some of my work.
