If I'm being honest.. I was feeling super uninspired the moment I set my brushes down after the shoreline series. Maybe I was just tired and worn out.. or had a lot of other things going on. All of it just kind of threw me for a loop. I was dramatically wondering if I'd ever get my mojo back! It felt weird to be so uninspired in the studio. To be honest, I've been experiencing a lot of different emotions and challenges lately. It feels like theres one thing after another, and its a really fast rollercoaster ride joggling us around!
With all of these thoughts spiraling around in my head, I considered the ocean landscape's different "moods". They all seemed to change with the times of the day for me. Morning time resembling "newness, joy, + lightness", noontime resembling "bright, loud, + good days", and nighttime resembling "darkness, challenge, + unknown". Thoughts of sunsets, morning fog, and black and white monochromatic storms rushed through my head. I took notes, made inspiration boards, and got to work. Thus, the Morning//Noon//Night series was born.
That is just how life is, though, right? Some seasons are easy, fun, and carefree like the bright of the morning/noontime. Some are dark nights, though, and feel unknown, stormy, and just scary. I cannot express enough how much I am already feeling so connected to this series. I am being changed by these paintings as an artist, and I can't wait to show you the finished collection. (I also have a feeling this collection won't be my last exploration of this idea!). Below are some unpolished photos of my progress inside the studio! Lookout for more details via my emails and social media posts. I can be found on Instagram at @brynnwcasey.art and you can sign up for my emails on the bottom of my home page or in the pop up screen!
