In art, the obvious is a sin.
Start of a New Series: “Fragments”

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.
