Ease, Unforeseen 2

Ease, Unforeseen 2 by Cath Duncan. 2022. Acrylic paint on canvas.


My “Ease, Unforeseen” collection of 5 abstract acrylic paintings is an exploration of my relationship with ease. I created these paintings intuitively, without any planning at all. My only guidance was that, as I worked, I thought of my friend, Laurie Foley, saying to me during a discussion about moments of unexpected ease or joy in the midst of hard times, “Stuff your pockets!”

All 5 of the paintings I created ended up looking like watery landscapes. It felt so apt. Water has such a sense of abundance and ease. Even when encountering obstacles, water keeps flowing easily around, under, over, and gently wears away at any obstacles. These waterscapes feel like peace, rest, and contentment to me. And I especially love that the process of creating these artworks felt so full of Ease. I didn’t plan, overthink, or doubt. I just relaxed, felt gratitude for the moments of ease in my life, and played.

Here’s a bit more about my personal process and the story behind the Ease Unforeseen collection.
