Fine Art Friday: Helen Frankenthaler

When I discovered Helen Frankenthaler’s work I was left with a visceral feeling. Her color field paintings some dark and others cheery in their abstraction amazed me.

One more of Frankenthaler’s gorgeous color field paintings which reminds me of a ┬ástorm cloud. I appreciate the way she creates tension like the purple shape is floating in the composition.

I was left wanting to try to create something similarly either through a dripping deep oily glazes or perhaps a large watercolor abstraction for an interior space. When the inspiration strikes me, I want to be ready.
