STILL SEARCHING FOR SIMPLICITY is part of the Spring Series, Breathe, which is an abstract expression of the exploration of seeking out a simpler life, letting go of stuff, and becoming more minimalist in the search for balance and streamlining. Much of this series involved painting over old paintings and using materials already in the studio instead of buying new. I call this STILL SEARCHING FOR SIMPLICITY because the process of painting it began with much busier abstract expressions but I was increasingly concerned and dissatisfied with it so I began covering things up to bring out only the parts I appreciated the most. This was the first painting in the series where I discovered, through this process, what the series was about. All series start with a concept but I wasn’t clear on this one until going through the process.
