I've got to start finding titles...

This is another one I've been working on. I've got to start naming these so my posts have more captivating titles : ) Below is what it looked like at an earlier stage, for those who like to see process/progress. And below that are two details. Thanks for reading!

I'm reminded of a small village surrounded by farmland. I really like your style :).
Stay inspired!

Kim, these abstracts are wonderful. And I love seeing how they evolve

I'd title it: "Bird's Eye View" or "The Way the Crow Flies" - my brain has a too much fun with abstract - it tends toward analytical and never more so than when looking at an abstract piece of artwork! :/ This piece seems like an aerial view of a quaint village amidst a vast countryside - with slight cloud cover... too much detail for an abstract?? Yeah, maybe.

I have been enjoying every one of your abstract paintings, Kim. Keep'em coming...

Hi Kim.

I guess the choice is between something non=abstract like New York
at dawn, or Blues in Chatham, and
something totally abstract like echo #243.gx

So hard. Love the paintings. Have no idea how you got there, but admire the work so much.

XO Barbara

This is great. I love that this is so different from the work you typically post. It shows bravery and experimentation -and the result is gorgeous!

This is amazing Kim. I really love those neutral colors with the splash of color and movement in the middle. And I have a hard time with titles too. I usually re name mine about five times. ;)

Thanks for sharing the "process," Kim.
I always tell my students, as soon as one puts that first mark on the page or canvas, then it's the painting that dictates what needs to be done, whether realistic or abstract. And I would think even more so with a work that is abstract. As far as "titles," that's a tough one. I always write on the back of a painting where and when it was done, but I'd rather the viewer bring something to the party in the act of viewing.
