Explorations: Experimental Series

 

Creating ART is often an experimental process. I must have balance in my life. Whereby sometimes I paint in a rigid fashion, I have come to appreciate learning to loosen up at times and explore for the shear fun of it. The paintings shown here are explorations of themes, materials, effects, and color, to name a few.

POETRY:

"Don't Fence Me In: Exploring Impossible"

(c) 2004 by Eugenia Algaze Garcia

 

I have taken this word out of the dictionary

Making comfortable what used to be scary (and quite contrary).

Parameter Stretching,

Or changing, equals idea fetching.

Surrendering a paradigm

Sensitizes what was previously sublime.

If these sentences

Break up fences,

Let it be from the word's removal -

Enlightening approval.

 

If you separate the "I" and "M" (I'M), which focuses on self-improvement, from the rest of the word, then "Possible" can become a reality.
