Ready to Hang
The majority of the time I paint intuitively. It is said that the first brush stroke can be the hardest and that is certainly the case with me. But, once begun it's just a matter of following the creative flow. This painting went through several major changes as it progressed. For the most part, my mind while painting is often set on bringing together all the elements. When I felt the painting was completed, I stood back in order to gain some perspective and found a beach scene. Such a pleasant surprise! The fun thing about abstracts is how they can speak so differently to each person.
Professional quality acrylic paints used in all my paintings as well as gallery wrap canvases with no staples. The 1.5" depth sides are painted white. Lots of surface texture. Wired on the back and ready to hang upon it's arrival.
