Pressing On

This is the last day of the first month of my rejuvenation Journey. I have had many inspiring and fearful moments. I’ve been uplifted and torn down. I have been energized and weary. Through it all I have tried to see the forest through the trees. Some days I had to really push myself.  Other days I had to slow down and take a step back and re-evaluate. Yesterday I was under the spell of defeat. Felt like I was in a trance, hypnotized. I could not move. I did not want to do anything! I prayed and was reminded of the sermon at church that morning to PRESS ON! It was at that very moment that I got the strength to do just that. I started moving around. I was lead to my storage closet and found paintings that I had done last year. I had not titled one of them yet nor shown it. Well here it is “HYPNOTIZED”


About crystallaurenabstracts

Crystal Lauren Cornell is a self -taught abstract artist. I was born and raised in Chicago but now reside in Southern California. I have been influenced by the arts every since I was a child. I had been an “in the closet painter” for over 20 years and had never shared my work with the public. It was not until 2008 that I first put a painting on EBay. It sold. I have collectors throughout the U.S. and Internationally. I love to use texture in my paintings it represents my feelings at the time of the painting. My artwork revolves around color, texture and layers. The layers represent the challenges in life that consume me. Underneath the layers is a textured imprint that represents an emotion I cover up. The color is the mirror to my soul that reflects those emotions. My art is therapy and relaxation that helps me to breathe and let go. Some of my paintings will come with a poem with the same title that put those emotions in to words. Music also plays a big part in my creative process the rhythmical journey directs the stroke of my brush. I call my work Abstract Expressionism Poetically & Lyrically Speaking. It has a contemporary design that will give your room that added flair.
