Spontaneous Living


9×12 oils and encaustics on wooden panel

Living spontaneously isn’t about making impulsive decisions; it’s about embracing the extraordinary moments that life throws our way. These moments can be exhilarating and terrifying at the same time, but they’re what make life worth living. In this artwork, I created a wave of vibrant red wax to symbolize the rush of emotions that come with living spontaneously. The sharp, intense hues represent the highs and lows of life, from the exhilaration of love and happiness to the depths of sadness and despair.

The chaotic texture of the wax mirrors the unpredictable nature of life, while the overall composition evokes a sense of movement and energy. This piece is a reminder that life is meant to be lived to the fullest, with all of its ups and downs.

“Ordinary life does not interest me. I seek only the high moments. I am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous. I want to be a writer who reminds others that these moments exist; I want to prove that there is infinite space, infinite meaning, infinite dimension.”
