Title: “3-DAYS IN AUGUST, #1, Edit D.”
Creation Date: 31 May 2014.
Series: 3-DAYS IN AUGUST DETAILS.

Size: 24″ x 24″.
Note: This is a detailed art photograph from the original acrylic painting titled, “3-DAYS IN AUGUST”, which I painted in 2004 – 10-years ago (almost). The entire work is very detailed, so I decided to photograph and design art images from the original painting. This particular piece sits to the right of me, at my desk’s location, hanging on the wall. I cleaned it (dust and cat fluff 🙂 ), and photographed the painting in detail, and that is what the “3-DAYS IN AUGUST DETAILS” Series is about. The title of the painting is just what it means: I painted the original artwork over a 3-day span, in August 2004.

CONTRADICTION, EDIT C, by Nawfal Johnson

CONTRADICTIONS, Edit C, Abstract Impressionism by Nawfal Johnson

About this Artwork:

This artwork is a contradiction, and that is why it is called, CONTRADICTION. I was wondering what to title this artwork: At first, I thought that because it looks like a field of bright, flowing flowers, that I would call this work, “Fields of Color.” However, that did not work for me, for some reason.

Then, the word, CONTRADICTION, came to mind. This is indeed, the biggest contradiction of my life in its present condition, and this artwork. I have suffered through about three weeks of some Anxiety Disorder–Having almost daily, and sometimes, almost continuous Panic / Anxiety Attacks. I do not feel bright, flowing, or flowery, like this artwork might seem to some of you. Therefore, it is a HUGE contradiction! Thus, that is where the title came from.

This is ‘splotchy-enough’ to fall into the category of Abstract Expressionism, the genre of painting I feel most comfortable with, and most at home doing. However, it has that, “Oh how wonderful, I was just at the Botanical Gardens and saw all these wonderful fields of flowers and this is the ‘Impression’ I had when I was there.”

I was never at the Botanical Gardens over the last three weeks. This is not some ‘impression’ in my mind of any particular scene. This artwork was not painted in the fashion of the Impressionists–Where the artist Sees, is Inspired, a Vision is left in the mind’s-eye, and then the inspiring scene is painted.  And, this is also not en plein air – being outside with your paints and seeing and painting at the same time.  No, that was not the case.

I was painting a contradiction of my present life dealing, or not dealing, with this new field of crappola I’m having to deal with.

I ask God, “Please, I can’t handle any more trials and tribulations–please just give me a freaking break!” God, the Universe, maybe too far away perhaps, to respond to me now, I’m not sure what time schedule God works on so that prayers or requests, are looked into.

Do you like this work? Please let me know. And, let me know your ‘impression’ of it.

I think this is one of the most difficult art pieces I have done, both in terms of painstaking work, and difficult emotionally.

I’m just ‘expressing’ myself with my work and words.

If this just represents a Ballroom-Tango-Samba of Nature, then that is OK too: You see what you wish to see, and I will interpret as I see it.

If anyone out there has also (or is also) gone thru, or living with, Anxiety Disorder, then please contact me to let me know if you have found any successful ways of handling this ‘hell’.

*Notes: I thought I was reaping good…good-will…hard-work…suffering arthritis for 35-years, but still falling on my face and moving forward while attempting to help others before myself; asking for fewer trials and tribulations from the power of the Universe; asking for guidance and relief. Well, I’m not sure, but the answer I got was more disaster and more problems, more headaches, so stressed out I sleep at 2AM and my sleep is so f’ed up, I just get up at 3:30AM, or 4AM, if I’m lucky, because sleep is useless. If Earl Nightingale is correct, and we become what we think about most of the time; then WOW, maybe he is RIGHT! Thanks Earl! I painted this mysterious, gloomy, abstract painting, two days before (today), and receiving more horrific work news from another contract I’ve had for 15-years! I think that IF there were an asteroid the size of a marble that survived entry through our outer levels of atmosphere, it would probably hit me in the head and pulverize me in a blazing inferno, and then I’d turn to dust like Daffy Duck does when he gets ‘blown to smithereens’ in so many episodes of the cartoons. Well, thanks so much once again to my awesome luck! (Being and feeling VERY Sarcastic at the moment). I won’t even suggest, “So, what the F’ Next?” Because, I don’t think I can take much more of this!

** A Note:

As you can see, when reading the Artwork Description, this is a Mixed Media art piece. Well, to be quite honest, as I always try to be with everyone, I am not exactly choosing the medium for which the individual art pieces are created: The amount of various types of art supplies I have, is what decides what is used for each new art piece.  That is just the way it is for me right now, but I have hope that things change for the better. 🙂

I want to wish you a good day and hope that you take something positive and energetic away with you, from my photography/art-blog; and that it encourages creativity inside of you.
