Fear and Anger

Fear and Anger ....This is done in acrylic on wood 12x15..
Emotions are a strange thing.. We can not control them . If we could completely control them , then we would not feel the raw emotion of being human. There are times in our life we do not want these emotions called fear, anger, sorrow . There are ones we would like to exchange them for such as joy, peace and laughter. The thing is we have to feel the bad to appreciate the good. I am speaking from my point of view. As artist we paint with our emotions, what we are feeling at the time it will show in our work. The mind is a strange and wonderful thing.
OK , so I have give my opinion of life...or the emotions of life..So what is your thoughts?

May you always dream in color.e

For me? Fear and anger are black voids....no soul in there.

This piece speaks to me of passion :)

I agree, we can hide our feelings in real life but it becomes so apparent in our art if people would just study it. Sometimes you can see the mood/feelings by what is not there as well. Great post!

Great post here. Very thought provoking. I do agree, that through our art, we can convey our emotions; with colors, textures, images. It all spills out on the canvas. We might be the only ones that see it; but that's what is most important. I love your fiery red fear and anger on wood! Have a peaceful day.

Your work is a beautiful expression. I see passion as well. Since each of us brings our own point of view to a piece my opinion is that we see and feel the emotions as they are within ourselves. This to me is a beautiful emotional excavation of work. The textures and colors and feeling of internal landscape are just lovely.

I would be lost in all that feeling jungle without my art....keeps me sane and more balanced. Every day life is already hard enough to deal with sometimes so art is a wonderful way to let go and clear your mind of unwanted feelings or stress. Sure a wonderful thing!
Smiles, Anke ;)
