Study in Blue No. 10
Created by Loren Yagoda
Often, we are told to breathe. Meditate, they say, when our lives are overrun with too many tasks all due at once. We go to a quiet place, ready to imitate the pros, assume the position, and disappear into peaceful bliss. That is what we see in the movies, but reality is quite different. We close our eyes and breathe. But in bold letters across our closed eyes are thoughts and images of errands, calls, and other distractions. This is why the artist paints these calm, quiet acrylic paintings. They offer a silent place to set our eyes so we can have a moment of absence of thought. This painting holds no subject matter to define, but instead, a quiet, mathematical silence with just a hint of color. On gallery-wrapped canvas with painted sides.
