It’s all about emotion, movement, & color…

Here are just a few samples of my abstract oil paintings (new page under ‘art’). When I paint I just let whatever is inside me that wants to come out, come out. I let the canvas dictate what it wants to be. I’m very affected by color and I find that the palette I use is often influenced by where I’m living at the time. The painting above was inspired by living in Okinawa, Japan. The post-card aqua seas were breathtaking and I loved to snorkel and dive. That’s what this painting represents to me. The paintings in the album were all created while in Mexico and represent everything from the Aztec culture to the lively fiestas. I think that movement and colors bring the painting to life. Of course, to me, painting is also a very emotional experience. That may or may not be evident. But whether you love or hate it, it’s all an emotional response. The beauty of abstract is that anyone can bring their own eye/experience to it and see whatever moves them.


About Passages 23

Passages 23 is a photography partnership between Cindy A. Carl (color photography) and David L. White (black and white photography). The name stems from the life changes we all go through; passages/journeys from one phase to the next. We think our photographs reflect changes in nature, as well, and provide glimpses of the past and of what was. About Cindy: I’m a writer by day and a writer by night, and I squeeze my photography into the in-betweens. I’m originally from Easthampton, MA (USA). My stuff lives in storage (I keep thinking I’ll settle down), while I’ve restlessly lived and traveled throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. My writing reflects the philosophical and psychological quirks of the human experience. If you like humorous stories that screw with your mind–in a pleasant way, of course–then please check out my latest novel, Quest for a Dream. My photography focuses on lines and unusual perspectives. I’m an avid animal lover, and live with my two wonderful cats, Isan and Lucy, and yes, they travel with me. Oh, and, I’m the wordy one. About David: I’m just an old fart with a camera.
