And now for something completely different…

I haven’t lost my mind, really.  But, this is not quite like anything I’ve done before, except for maybe one or two very old crazy abstract works…but not really even like those.

I finished this last week.   This was one of the first few paintings that I did in the process of heading towards my new direction last fall, but I never really felt it worked all that well.  I just kept working on it and working on it, painting out what I didn’t like, until I got to here.  After so many working sessions, it now has a lot of surface history, and I finally like it a lot.   I hope to do more work along these lines.

The secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.

  • I like the texture of the paint, and the wavy movement of it. I like the colors– especially the wine and teal shades. The kelp/flowers are primitive, unusual and abstract.
