Simply Madness

Simply Madness by Karen Gadient, 2015

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.

    Everyone’s going to say simply beautiful but let me be the first.

  2. I love this! Powerful in different ways.

  3. fabulous texture and gesture…must have been fun to make…

  4. Amazing quote. Never expected such deep thoughts concerning crayons.

  5. So love the quote, too!

  6. I love the artwork! I found myself staring at it and just enjoying the colors and dynamics going on here. While I liked crayons as a kid, I never felt like one until today!

  7. I really like your work Karen which is unusual because I normally this kind of abstract style doesn’t resonate with me. Once in a while it would be nice to read not just how you made it but why. It would be nice to read sometimes about your thinking behind your art.

    • Thank you for your compliments and input, Rich. I haven’t had the energy for blogging recently, and your thoughts made me realize how much less I’ve written with each post in the last year or two. I’ll work (if slowly) to improve that!

  8. Ah, not madness at all, very much like this! The idea of flinging paint around gets the creativity mind going, perfect complimentary colours too! πŸ™‚ And the quote…haha…never thought of it like that, but yes, we could learn a lot from crayons!! πŸ˜€
