Abstract Art Daily Artsy Paintings

Release. Conn Ryder.

I think most artists would tell you that there is a build up of ideas, of creativity that happens within us, until we feel as if we might burst if we don’t get it out.  Or conversely, if we let it build up too long without ablution, we might deflate like a slow leaking balloon.

In her expressive abstract paintings, Colorado artist Conn Ryder releases her own emotional responses to the experiences of life.

Caught in that built up feeling is where I am right now.  We spent last Saturday hiking in the Grand Tetons and Sunday driving up through the mountains, gazing at waterfalls, marveling at the enormity of the sky, and glimpsing black bears.  The inspiration is building and I feel like I’m ready to burst.  But other responsibilities have been getting in the way.  It’s something I need to work on, to work out, to find a way to do it all, to get it all out.
