“It’s Complicated” 
is a 12×12″ oil painting by Christine L. Owens

Artists, have you ever completed a project and found that it perfectly portrayed your current emotional state? Of course you have. Such is not always the result, but at some points in our creative lives the emotional chaos screamed to be released.

As an artist, I tend toward colorful, beautiful and joyful oil paintings. I am currently working towards a one-woman show, so I am painting through some crazy times and finding that the process of painting calms me. Normally, the viewers’ comments are “That is so beautiful!” That may be true of this piece, too, but thorns and psychedelic colors will evoke more questions than simple comments on how pretty it is. “It’s Complicated” does that for me. The colors, the shapes, the contrast make me wonder….

What IS going on in my head? As an observer who doesn’t know me personally, what do YOU think it portrays? Your comments are welcomed. Yes, I’m pretty sure I can handle it.
