Shake it up

The last couple of weeks I was working on multiple paintings to varying degrees of success. In between I kept going back to this one, playing with different concepts, painting a little differently than my norm - experimentation mode as it were : ) So here is the outcome - a whole bunch of 80s energy going on...

Throwback Thursday - Branches in April

I'm not trying to use Throwback Thursdays as a crutch but I've had limited studio time this week and the painting I'm working on has been a toughie! So here is one of my favourite paintings. I love this one because it began as an (unsuccessful) landscape and ended up taking on a life of its own. As I painted over my previous work I began to see it emerge as an abstract. At this point I followed my intuition and just thought about form, movement and colour. It taught me so much.
