KMA2739 Beyond Horizons (12x16, abstract, acrylic landscape)

It is difficult to describe how I create my abstract paintings as it is such an intuitive process. Of course my results are a culmination of life experience and everything I have been exposed to in addition to all the art I peruse looking for inspiration. This painting evolved seemingly into a landscape and I let it "paint itself" once I saw a direction in it. I am off to some great adventures on Kauai with my good friends Connie and Pat. Posting will be sporadic for the next 10 days as I enjoy this vacation but know I will return home with yet many new inspirations!

KMA2734 Soaring Dreams (30x40 abstract acrylic)

This painting was inspired from a small abstract that I created with my oil paints. Whenever I finish one of my oil paintings, I use the remaining paint to create a small abstract. I then choose my favorites of these to use as inspiration for my larger abstract paintings. It is such a great journey from leftover paints to a final creation. I never quite know where I will end. I really love the colors in this one.

KMD2735 Perception in Red (6x8, floral)

With winter still coming on strong here in Denver (once again it is snowing as remnants of the last snow had almost melted off) I look into images that will bring spring closer. So, of course I reach for my familiar and favorite; poppies. This piece was inspired from a picture taken in Estes Park, Colorado where there was a full garden of these delightful red gems.

KMA2719 Warm Chromatic (abstract acrylic, warm hues)

This warm and colorful abstract is another done intuitively. It is one that took many layers and much study and observation before I knew it was finished; the most difficult part of painting abstractly for me! I am pleased with both the composition, flow and colors in this one. I hope it keeps the viewer engaged.

KMA2720 The End of Silence (8x10 oil abstract red flowers)

I created this colorful piece with pure imagination and was thrilled with the way it came out. It is such a wonderful time when I tap into the inner self and the painting just flows out, seemingly without effort. Lacking words to describe what I am attempting I will use the words I found in trying to describe abstracted art: Abstraction generally involves implication, suggestion and mystery rather that obvious description. Like a good poem, a good abstraction attacks your feelings before your understanding.

KMA2718 Unfolding (20"x20" acrylic absract by Kit Hevron Mahoney)

This is a painting done for our Painting with Passion Show.It is another one of my "intuitive" creations where I am working totally reference free and only with what speaks from within. It is a huge challenge for me with years of training where I paint using reference. It is fun and frightening to see what evolves. I am surprised at how I see abstracted figures revealed in many of these works. Of course the joy with the results is having everyone see from their own experiences.

KMD2727 Outside the Pub (London painting, urban, cityscape, original oil)

While sorting through my London paintings for pictures of the red phone booths I came across this scene that really appealed to me for a daily painting. I think I might have to find more of these wonderful scenes as not only are they fun to paint but I get to relive my travels as well.

KMA2703 Looking Glass (abstract, oil, 4"x6")

Delving into the abstract brings me such joy as they come totally unbidden. These little paintings often generate ideas for larger paintings. This is one which I look forward to creating on a large scale. I really love the mix of color and shape this one has.

KM2726 Entranced (figurative, child, children, China)

I have had this picture in my files since my trip to China a few years ago. The children there are adored and adorable. This little girl was so entranced while watching the crowds in Tienanmen Square as was I in disbelief that I was actually there. I went to China on a painting/tour trip desiring experiences, viewpoints and visuals different than my own world here. It was that and more and I am so grateful to have made new friends and lasting memories and a plethora of new painting material. I, however will not try painting on location in a new part of the world as there is just too much to take in besides the challenge of dragging painting supplies everywhere and settling down long enough to focus on one spot.
