That Faraway Look

That Faraway Look - Jenna Decker small
THAT FARAWAY LOOK (2019) 8″x10″ watercolor on paper

A glimpse into your mind.

Imaginary gardens growing, twisting, concealing.

Only you know what you’re looking at. Only you dream the dreams inside your brain.

Shifting visions of flowers, vines, and songs all tangled up in knots.

Colors and shapes blend and germinate…

When you’re staring off into space with that faraway look in your eyes.

Unformable Things

Works in progress…

“It’s all the unwordable things one wants to write about, just as it’s all the unformable things one wants to paint” -Emily Carr

Discordant, Place Undreamt, In Your Brain

Left: “Discordant” watercolor 5x7inches.

Dripping, flowing jewel-toned notes of music. Experimenting with new layering techniques. Loving this bright color palette of olive green, red violet/magenta, and deep golden yellow.

Top Right: “Place Undreamt” watercolor 8×10 inches.

Shapes in constant motion, forming abstract dreamy landscapes and blooming colors.

Bottom Right: “In Your Brain?” watercolor & ink 8×10 inches.

Inspired by turning music into art.

(details)

Another music-into-art work. Shapes and colors composed to visually represent music. I think there’s an interesting sense of motion in this piece, moving from the detailed layers at the bottom (which could translate to individual notes in a piece of music) to the free-flowing shapes at the top (which represents more of the emotional component and over-all feeling of a certain song).

 Swirling candy-colored shapes, slightly psychedelic, a groovy painting! Something totally new for me. Inspired by turning music into art. I loved painting this and getting lost in the layers of color, movement, and sound.
