Two new abstract art paintings have been posted at soulbearing.com!!

Unraveling the Unknown is a hypnotic composition of spirals and swirls in reds, yellows, oranges, and blues, ready to hang in your home or office to mesmerize guests and visitors.

The Life of a Spark is a high contrast, action-packed mix of vibrant yellows and blues, with a splash of orange– perfect for lovers of anything intense and unusual.

Both paintings are great for anyone looking to add a unique pop of colour to home or business.

Fans of vibrant colour, motion, and expressionism will love these.  And, no additional charge for shipping!!

It’s still a “work in progress”, and is by no means an extensive collection, but it does give visitors and patrons a peek at earlier paintings and drawings which are no longer available for purchase– and it includes a link to current art listings, so patrons don’t miss out on the most recent paintings and drawings.

Here’s one of my faves of the sold paintings:

(And, the paintings on canvas page has been updated, with the most recent painting added!!)


a place in the cosmos, by s.lynnette

Abstract expressionist painting in layers of reds, violets, and yellows, against deep blues and black. Original fine art painting by S.Lynnette.

This one hasn’t been posted on the “art for sale” page yet, but you can already order prints of it in the Soulbearing zazzle shop.  If someone doesn’t claim the original painting before it’s posted at soulbearing.com, it will be available for purchase there in a couple of days.

Meanwhile, doesn’t it look great on this phone case??


Here’s a glimpse of the latest original abstract art painting, titled Severing Entanglements. (I might offer deeper explanation later; I might not. I think this one mostly speaks for itself.)  This one hasn’t been added to soulbearing.com yet, but it will be soon!!

I enjoy photographing floral still lifes, rural scenery, and so on; I’m sure it shows in the quantity of these types of images in my collection.  I also enjoy painting and illustration, particularly abstracts.  This combination of interests eventually led to the question:  Can a photograph do what a painting does? (If you’re not an artsy type and don’t get it, read on anyway.  No, I’m not really going to explain, but there are important insights and links to buy stuff so I can keep painting.)

Digital photography and image editing software have made it incredibly easy for artists and amateurs alike to create attractive pictures; as evidence of this, there are literally billions of nice looking images on the internet. 

But, as an artist who prefers painting abstracts, making pretty photos can sometimes become mundane.  My solution for this has been to seek unusual angles, unusual subjects, macros, and other techniques which result in images that appear more abstract.

It started a few years ago with a photographic tribute to Jackson Pollock’s artwork.  Viewers stared curiously at the tangles of light and dark, wondering what was the inspiration for choosing to photograph these particular things, then grinned at the moment of realization that it wasn’t really about the things (It rarely really is.).

This led to more images done in tribute to other abstract painters, like images inspired by Rothko’s glowing squares:

Heavenly Light in the Loft by S.Lynnette

Or, more recently, more images reminiscent of the abstract expressionists like Pollock:

Trees in the Snow

Of course, I haven’t given up the floral and rural photography.  I do still like pretty pictures:

And some images are even available on jewelry now:

So if you see the abstract art and photography, and think to yourself “What on earth is that?”, don’t panic.  I still haven’t completely given up making pretty pictures.  If you’d like to see more, you can shop for merchandise printed with my images, or better yet, shop for original art.
