Abstract Dog Painting

Abstract Dog Painting

Abstract Dog Painting is certainly a keyword name as I am an internet artist for sure. This painting actually has a title, The Dog Running Left. It is the second of the abstract dog series. I didn’t set out to paint the beast. I don’t set out to paint anything. I make shapes. Later I need a file name and have to “see something”. After I painted these I said, “Oh it must be the dog.”, They are now abstract dogs. I’m not even sure what that is.

The second of the dog paintings is The Dog Running Right:

Here is my painting of an old dog who used to live next door:

Abstract dogs aren’t as sweet as real dogs. They are a bit unpredictable, like the artist/ poet/who-ever the hell I am. Anybody wanna buy an abstract dog painting from an old dog, well….
I haven’t given these away like I did the rest…so far.

Abstract Kiss Painting

Abstract kiss painting by David Michael Jackson
This abstract painting is the juxtaposition of two profiles in one. It represents a kiss. It is an Oil painting on canvas. Painted circa 1992. I was doing these icon profiles then. I still do them. This a relatively large painting. I guess it’s an abstract. I’m not even sure what abstract paintings mean anymore. Anyway it’s pretty and it reminds me of kiss from my lady.

The most famous and truly beautiful painting of a kiss is by Klimpt. His use of the gold color rivals Van Gogh.

There was the famous kiss painting on the Berlin Wall

There is The Kiss by Munch who is known for The Scream.

We all remember the famous sculpture by Rodin The Kiss

I did set out painting the apples as I remember. I did not purposely include other foods….I tend to see them now. It is the nature of a good abstract painter to set out with no intent whatsoever. That is what I do. I blindly apply paint to the canvas.
I always hate it the next day and paint over it. This hating it and repainting is called “painting by constant revision”.
I did the same with the background. It has been every color in the universe it seems.
Eventually the background creates a shape, shapism. That is what I have always called it. Abstracts need shape!
Eventually I give up and cast the painting aside in failure.
Six months later I discover it in a corner and it’s like I never saw it before, like someone else did it. I suddenly love it. I actually feel love for this painting. It has a life. It will be gone someday.
