Itchy. I can’t explain it.

Itchy. I can’t explain it.
Ooh, that feels weird - I was thinking the exact same thing, and then I scrolled down to your post. But that's the precise word.
Yes! For me it’s itchy because I immediately thought of a half-organized desk (or half-disorganized). Either way, the paper is engulfing the work space and makes my skin crawl.
So nice job generating a work based fever dream OP!
No need to explain! Thank you for sharing :)
calm it's soothing
Not being a part of the crowd. That one smudge on the left not near the others just says something to me….(although that could’ve been me grasping for straws since I can’t understand abstract art)
I thought the same
Sounds like you're trying to look at it figuratively. Nothing wrong with that, btw. You're looking at components of the picture, like it is a representation of something, and deriving an emotional response from the interaction of those components.
Try turning off the analysis part of your brain, stop _trying to_ understand, and just experience it and see how you feel when looking at it. Certain colours, certain shapes have subconscious responses. Lean into that and just let them bubble to the surface - try comparing different types of images and see if they make you feel differently.
You can mute the subreddit 🙂
Actually? Nothing at all.
I feel incomplete. It def doesn't look finished imho.
Maybe that's what makes it finished
Blackboard eraser tantrum… and one final smack before giving up and doing something you want - like answering a love letter. Very cool, man. Very cool.
Love ❤️ Love! Leave as I'd. So beautiful
Thank you so much! I was just thinking if I want to add something else or no
Feels unfinished to me
confused as to why reddit is suggesting this to me \^.\^
Same here!! Love art and love this piece, but I don't follow any art subreddits at all!
It makes me feel as if I’m not where I’m supposed to be. Not where I want to be.
in e minor
Uncomfortable actually. Like no offense its not a bad painting persay but i don’t like it.
it makes me uncomfortable too
first thing i thought of was like, clawing my way out of something.
(eek don’t even wanna know what that says about where my heads at)
but then… with that one dot.. i thought “got out.”
Not much. Aside from thinking the white stuff kinda looks like whatever you put beneath tiles.
I feel disassociation
wondering what your intention was?
It feels messy and uncomfortable.
I love it.
An old wood fence with paint peeling off and moss growing on the bare wood.
Safe. Safe as if somewhere known. In a usual place.
It makes me think of rural nature and the eerieness of it
Isolation, or some kind of displacement, but it feels natural and accepted
exactly how I felt
I want you to turn it counter-clockwise. This is supposed to be landscape mode.
Not conforming with the “norm” of society. One little smudge defying the norm and going on it’s own.
My fat ass thought someone spilled a bag of ruffles chips on a cutting board
Like im eating chips and I'm almost out 😭
I feel your pain 😂
Makes me feel pity on your mom for having to wash all the forks after your art project.
You're right. I sort of regretted saying it but not really. So in an attempt to make a silly, I've made myself the clown. Oh well.
Like I wanna write stuff on it (like on a chalkboard, but I prefer doing it with acrylic 😊)
Fabulous Texture contrast, you are using your hands? What size is this? Larger work and scale might be interesting. Looking to see a series of these and continue your exploration.
Maybe even including that blue wall color and the Ukrainian heart on the canvas as well.
Many thanks! Actually I’m not using hands at all, brushes only
Ghost pulls back the curtain
Or confusion, definitely abrasive.
I wouldn't mind a pop of bright gold in the bottom left corner..! All in all though, stunningly beautiful :)
That life is dark and in place there's a light
I think I have to find a restroom, nature calls
but then i see the lovely color coming thru on the left and i go soft-eyed & dreamy
Rounding the corner of a white fence was my first thought.
Snow flakes on moss
But these snowflakes look like fluffy razors
I guess I think the artist is stating that he is trying to mask a sad dark side and covering up with white pure thoughts that only cover the true state of sadness. The white squiggly lines represent a strife for purity and forgiveness. I feel conflicted looking at this work. Get help, there are drugs and treatment for depression or whatever ails you.
Thank you for sharing your opinion! Though I feel you should be more conscious about suggestion anything related to depression and treatment. As in you may hurt other people. Unless it’s your real intention
That the dog wants to go outside
My OCD is flaring up. Lol.
Stressed because that one god damn white spot needs to get back to the group!
Breaking a cycle
School days, the smell of a chalk board and the cool touch of a desktop.
Separation and anxiety.
I need to take a shit
A little uncomfortable with the green/red part, but calm with the texturized white part
Lonely. Observing the crowd.
I'd definitely be interested in a print.
That can be done :)
Punching a hole through it for fun
Calm. It reminds me of the art at my therapist’s office.
It’s not that interesting.,what prompted you to paint it?
Emotions I felt at that point of time. Sorry for being not interesting for you
Hungry for Sun Chips.
It makes me feel late for work.
At annoys me that the ratio of red to white is un-evean (I know I butchered the spelling)
As an artist who has a slight issue deciding when things are done and not overworking them while simultaneously also being someone who starts creative projects but gets frustrated part of the way through and gives up before I explode, mad and called out.
The light is winning
Reminds me of a half-cleaned greasy window
I would rotate it to the right once.
The whites piece look fluffy.
“One more piece” I’d call it.
It reminds me of the collection of memories and experiences we collect, like a pile of fluffy scraps in our brain. The green reminds me of the depth of the soul. I also find the texture in your painting soothing, like I can feel it on my finger tips, through my eyes.
I love it. I paint and draw abstract, Impressionism and expressionism. Very good feels. Eye of the beholder, so I’m used to others not agreeing.
Keep up the good work. I’ve been on an art sabbatical for a few years. You make me want to start painting again. I need to get supplies
Thank you so much for sharing and for your support! Please, get back to art. I’m curious to see your work!
There seems to be as much focus on the stuff around the art as there is on it.
I feel like I'm that extra piece that you get in a Lego set; I may be needed or I may not, either way I'm just a part of the Lego set.
That it's hideous
I'm only emotional to bright colors or big contrast
Is that supposed to be a top down view of a sheep herd separated by a fence of some kind? And the one white spot is the one sheep that had escaped?
My brain immediately went to an abandoned school chalkboard with past chalk marks piled up at the bottom. All except for one
I see an arial view of the great planes taken from a plane or a helicopter.... where the plains meets the rocky's/colorado/montana.... An agricultural area next to a mountain range (as seen from above).
Looks like the background of News Of The World Album
You were hungry and stopped
Disorder, in an uncomfortable way. I like the painting.
Like I’m a bird flying over a crowded beach/ocean where one person is totally just vibing and everyone else is like clamouring together.
I feel it must be crooked or slanted because the white fluff is falling out.
Idk but mood
Like a storm is around the horizon... and I'm watching it get closer and closer....pulling me into a corner.
Looks like a beach from an aerial view
Uncomfortable. Like something is discordant. Maybe it's the color scheme and textures but it also feels subtly chaotic (almost calm before the storm). Looks beautiful though!
I don't know anything about abstract art but in my head, I see a white brush stroke falling into a dark background, separated from all the other white strokes.... So I guess in a really contrived way I see it as a representation of somebody going down the wrong path, or maybe just separation.
I feel like it isn’t finished
Content— complete. No ocd itchies, no perfectionist twitchies.
My first thought , a domino piece that is out of the pile. Was it missing ?
Discomfort, utter discomfort. My eyes try to correct itself as well I think.
It's great for all the wrong reasons, I love it!
I also feel discomfort 🙌🏻 thank you for sharing!
it feels like there’s some sort of distortion or corruption happening. i don’t know, it’s the first thing that popped up in my head
Makes me feel like im at the beach or by la Seine river
Looks like an old school desk. Nostalgia
I Stand Alone
Cringe and disappointment
Tension. Unresolved frustration.
Anxious, like theres a dark mystery and something is clawing at it.
Not a whole lot.
a mix of calm and unsettled at the same time. great work op 🥰
Part of me feels the OCD anxiety of the notion it’s incomplete. That it appears the white needs to go all the way across
Part of me sees hope. That that the white represents clearing your internal cavas to start new. That the process of starting fresh has not arrived but it is on its way. The first step has been taken. A new beginning is coming soon
I dropped a piece of popcorn
Really strong painting in the Bryan Wynter tradition. Very well balanced; not easy. I like it a lot.
I reeeeally want to sweep that feather into the pile.
That one rogue flower in the lawn happy as can be.
Personally I love that spare one! I thought I wouldn’t but it makes the picture!
Ok so I really like this painting, but upside down. Idk if that makes sense. If the lone paw print was in the top right corner it reminds me of my cat and how she doesn’t like the snow. However, in its current orientation it just makes me confused and unsure about the intent. Like I get it’s abstract and appreciate the creativity but wish it were upside. Sorry. Great work though either way!
Thank you! I appreciate your point of you :)
Its too balanced it feels incomplete.
I feel like the segregation officers could’ve tried harder. /s
My ruined ass brain says racism. White from color, almost segregated down the middle, except for just the smallest bit of white that sticks out in the color. Wack.
It makes me feel super empowered like maybe I’m that little white brushstroke being brave and bold and breaking out of the norm.
Let me ask the same question to the person who made it.
What do YOU feel?
The duality of man
Separate from... Leader not a follower...
A birch tree, and a Ghibli-esk birch bark paper goblin that fell off. That one guy sees him, they lock eyes
Oh man it’s so ambiguous I can tell you many things, but what does not go out my head is that the right side kinda looks like claw marks or hand marks of someone getting dragged over
Ocean but there’s a lonely wave. that’s my two cents, it’s really pretty tho.
I dig it
I feel like I'm scratching myself and i can even listen to those sounds👾
make me think of being stuck in a situation that you can’t control
Uhm. For some reason I feel itchy?
Dry, like the thing are bones. Also a little ichy and unconfortable, as if something will cut me (like a paper cut).
Uncomfortably familiar. In the best way, though.
Honestly white is a great color to use. It’s bland but relatable. White is everywhere in our lives.
Calming but uplifting at the same time
It’s oddly calming.I love the color combinations. That the majority of what you see is the green. But on the right you have some rich yellow and reddish tones covered up by all the white brushstrokes. I also really like the one brushstroke on the left.
The “White Stripped” being seems to want his piece back.
An intrusive thought breaks into my mind
It's upside down.
to me it looks like it is unfinished..
According to you what can be added to finish it?
I feel like it would give different feelings in different orientations
Chaos and mild frustration
Together but still alone
