About the Art

 
Christine Loeffler

After 25 years of dreaming about painting but never actually rolling up my well-worn sleeves and doing it , I knew I could no longer wait for life to somehow give me the permission i wasn’t giving myself.

So, I began. And it has taught me so much. I’m appreciating what others’ I’ve read say about it. God’s artistry IS alive in every falling leaf, winter scene, awakening flowers and kitchen gardens. I lose sense of time when mixing colors on the palette or using a 00 brush to capture a tiny stem of a leaf, or markings on the back of a butterfly. The work always humbles and re-centers me, and makes every morning a gift of new beginnings.

My family, friends and clients who mean so much to me fuel my love of learning and continual growth. I create abstract art because it helps me appreciate life in a more meaningful and joyful way. I think it will always be with me.

My abstract paintings hold memories and present sense impressions. Most of my abstracts are derived from my imagination and obsession with color. 

 
 
 

“For me painting is about trust and deep listening— to myself and the canvas before me. It is a profoundly authentic experience.”

 
 
 

“When in the studio, I begin painting with somewhat of a plan, but soon I find the painting takes over… that it has a life of its own. I am no longer painting the painting. I am instead the vehicle holding the brush.”

 
 
 
 

“This is not surprising to me. I see it as a metaphor for life. When we can focus on authentic, raw truth and allow our gifts and talents to take over, the universe conspires to craft amazing results.”
