Kathy Flament explains Paint Toss
I pretend to know how to paint. I have no formal training, but have always loved colors and shapes and intersecting lines in nature. I have attended printing and ceramic workshops in Truro Castle Center for the Arts in Cape Cod Massachusetts and papier mache classes at the ESO Arts Center in Belle Haven VA I have knitted for some time, too. I am a member of the Art League of Ocean City and the Rehoboth Art League and have canvases in both locations. Paint Toss was juried into the Arts Alive in June of 2012 in Ocean City.
I started expressing myself after a bout with depression. I tried art therapy. I wanted to see if I could understand how I felt and how to explain myself to others. I drew a wandering path that traveled through, around, over all sorts of shapes and colors. At last, I had a tool to show others how I felt. With my drawing in hand, I could explain myself.
By tossing paint, I can identify, express, resolve and manage my feelings as well as invite others to know me better. I like to think I can add joy and a tool for self-discovery to others. I let my mood move my brushes, hands, fingers, rollers, and brooms.
