"Experimental Painting investigates exploratory methodologies, techniques and approaches in mixed-media art. Throughout the book, many in-depth demonstrations are featured, documenting cuttingedge mixed-media painting processes from concept to final execution. To offer an extensive array of visually stimulating possibilities for artists to explore, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional techniques are covered in a range of subject matter. Conceptual and thematic approaches include using symbolism, metaphor and allegory, incorporating pluralism and nonlinear storytelling, utilizing automatism and freeform painting, and employing costuming, props and theatrical settings." — Lisa L. Cyr
Developing Personal Content Through Journaling
Experiencing the world through the act of journaling produces an authentic perspective. As an active observer, the artist establishes a direct sensory connection with a subject, event or place that cannot be replicated using reference photography alone. The recording of sights, sounds, smells and tactile sensations captures the spirit of what has transpired in a way that is passionate, emotionally driven and vividly compelling. While working in a journal, an artist is able to make connections between the disparate influx of information and stimuli that surrounds everyday life. Whether a ranting of the day's activities or a detailed recitation of a sustained engagement, journal entries provide insight from real life experiences, shedding light on ideas that may have been percolating in the subconscious for years.
Wherever I go, I always keep a journal with me. Sometimes I'll write about a magnificent sunset that I've experienced or I may detail the day I spent walking with my daughter telling stories triggered by the engaging sights, sounds and smells that surrounded us. These collective literary snapshots are later expanded upon in the making of my paintings. The dynamic interplay of observation and imagination makes for intriguing picture making.
