Warmth. I wanted to do something to express warmth. So I began spraying colors that were bright, but not screaming at you. I added a texted surface to the work and tweeked it a bit until I felt this abstract was warmth. Warmth... like the sun shining down on your skin... like the wind blowing on a Summer day... like the touch of a tender lovers kiss... like the taste of bake goods in the air... like the smell of sun lotion at the beach... like the sound of joy filling into your heart... like a memory washing over in your mind... like a soft blanket tucking you in... like the sound of beautiful music in the air... like the time spent with family and good friends... like a puppy licking your face... What is warmth to you? Is it a physical feeling, a sound, taste, touch, smell, sight? Whatever it is, may you find lots of it in life. May it brighten your day, fill your heart, mind, and soul, may it keep away the cold.

Artist Reply: Thank you Joke! I am trying to get more confortable to doing abstracts. It's not an area I ever thought I'd work in in art. I have found I like it, and will do more.

Wonderful abstract. Love your concept behind this. Warmth to me is many things. Like coffee with lots of cream... but better shared with a friend. Like reading a good book on a rainy day... but better when its with my son. Like sinking into the bed at the end of a rough day... but better in the crook of my husband's arm. Like hugging my sisters... even more so after a long time apart. Like recieving a gift given out of love... even better to give a gift out of love. Warmth to me is all the sensless moments we give ourselves to stop being busy, and instead just to be.

Artist Reply: LOL! I knew who is was as soon as you responded!
