I am a Western Oklahoma artist painting mostly abstract works in acrylic. I'm not a painter who finishes a painting every day, but one who paints on most days and sometimes finishes one in a day! I paint every chance I get and love to hear people comment about something they see in my abstracts or how the art makes them feel. Painting is a journey and I thrive on finding new things around each twist and turn of the path. I thank God for my ability to express myself on the canvas and for allowing me to touch others with that gift. View more of my works at www.markyearwood.com

Abstract possibilities are endless and after each mark is made on the substrate, I
have to make a decision of what comes next. In realism, you know where the painting
will (or should) end up.
This is the part of my work that is the most thrilling to me.
"What happens next?"
Abstract art requires the viewer to contemplate, study and ask themselves "What am
I feeling?" I enjoy being a part of that interactive experience with the person
viewing my art.
The impression could be of total awe or disgust, but a great abstract piece of art
is sure to command a reaction.
"Art must be, somehow, essential for life. In fact, art is part of survival; art is part of the human spirit, an unquenchable expression of who we are; art is one of the ways in which we say, "I am alive, and my life has meaning."
