The beauty was created accidentally.
Today, I completed a small painting by mixing acrylic and watercolor.
I made a butterfly out of acrylic with my child, and when I saw the red paint, I thought I would like to draw a red flower.
Sometimes I don't intend to and sometimes I want to let the paint smear or paint according to the intention of the paint, which is not my power. The red flower picture below is a mark made by the facing sides of two papers. It creates a natural and beautiful pattern, like a butterfly's wing pattern, sometimes like a leaf, or a petal pattern.
The mountain below is made by catching the patterns that occur naturally after crumpled paper and paint on the crumpled side. I love this unintended naturalness. And if possible, I want to draw pictures easily using this unintentional naturalness.
The paints make their own way, shape themselves, and even foretell what the future will look like. The thoughts that come to my head sometimes come to my mind like an inspiration, like a picture that naturally creates shapes. The picture below is one of those inspirations.
The inspiration that came to mind became the following sunflower series.
And based on that inspiration, I also create a series of seas like paintings of the seas that I recently completed.
When inspiration strikes my heart, I want to run to the studio right away. When I make these invisible inspirations visible with a brush, I myself can directly face the reality of the imaginary in my head and my mind directly. I love art that makes these invisible inspirations visible.
