This year (so far), I am experimenting with lots of ways of finding images and lots of ways of painting them.

This is the first of my “Fragments” series — favorite snippets from larger works repainted on smaller canvases.  I think I prefer this in the horizontal orientation.  They look like snuggling friends to me (I see lots of characters in my abstract paintings.  Do you?).  What I was exploring here was painting in very thick paint over previous layers of thick paint in different colors.  I still like it better in the larger painting this was drawn from (“Comin’ Through!” – http://marilynfenn.com/art/abstract/?titleid=490), as I think some even cooler brush accidents happened in that one, but this one is sweet, too.

Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world.
