Anger and fear – acrylic painting

Anger and fear, 30×24 cm

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
– Yoda

Music theme: St. Anger – Metallica

This is another one of my intuitive and associative works. It is textured, but main accent is on strong colors and brush strokes. I was feeling anxious, like some little evil creatures were whispering to me, trying to take me and darken my mood. I got an urge to paint it to drive them out.

First I painted whole canvas with bright blue, and put on some crumpled paper and piece of bubble wrap, and painted over them.


When dry, I let my imagination lead the brush, and here is the end result:



Final thought:

Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.
James Thurber
