Okay - here's the finished painting. I absolutely struggled with this one. It's funny. I think abstracts are perceived to be easy... you know, the whole "my kid could do that!" thing. But I must say, it is a challenge to make your spaces interesting and to have depth and harmony and tension. Don't get me wrong: it is also a challenge to paint representationally with your own vision and courage. Perhaps it's that I'm exploring new mental muscles. In the beginning, the first couple of paintings just flowed out of me, but after that initial flush I've had to really crack down! Like, hard! But I love it ; )
This is a large painting - 36" square. Below are a few details.
