This is turning into a bit of a monster! And to think, I could have been painting instead …
The literature indicates the possibility of a change in artistic style due to the drugs.
I don’t think that I have made any drastic changes in style. The seeds of all the styles that I employ were there in the early 00s or before.
Above, you can see a very early knife painting, done outdoors. Below, another watery knife painting (a little more involved) done outdoors this summer:
I’ve started a mural project at the local school, for which I’m using a distinctly different style. A style born in 1998, as noted in this art blog post.
Now, if I were to suddenly start painting abstracts, it might be a different issue.
(Of course, I attribute this abstraction to further natural development and the paint left over on my palette.)
