“My Energy Series uncovers vivid, abstract forms or color, line and light”, says Skye. Skye discovered herself as an artist through abstract art, and it all began with her energy. A fundamental key to Skye’s success with abstract art, is to be “fearless”, which relates to many things in life. Over one hundred Energy Series paintings exist in the series and each have its own unique style. Each energy painting was created in under thirty minutes or less. Skye says, “that it is important to know when to stop, because it is easy to overwork an abstract painting.” Skye tries to keep each painting as fresh as she can while using oil pastels and watercolors. Oil and water never mix, and the effect created is dynamic and lines seem to move on the paper. “These paintings have their own pulse”, says Skye. Energy paintings begin with a clear mind. “Once my mind is clear I begin to draw upon the surface of the paper with oil pastels. I do no planning on where and how I draw my lines; I go.” Skye wants these paintings to inspire others to embrace their own energy and be fearless in anything that they do.
