As you know, I like to dabble with abstract on occasion. I seem to paint in spirts....all landscapes, or all flowers, or all seascapes, etc. This is left over from the last time I had the itch to do an abstract.
I wanted to do an abstract landscape in a larger size than I have worked with in the past. I remembered driving through the fields of Georgia just as the sun broke over the horizon one morning, and decided to paint based on that memory.
I enjoyed the experience of painting on a larger scale and tried hard to keep the freshness of my smaller abstracts.
We used to say that photos never lie, but as you know, that is not true these days. I just returned from a short trip to New York City with my daughter and grandson. He had lots of fun taking photos that lie. This is one of my favorites.....
We also walked by a sports show being filmed on TV. That is my grandson in the background, making like the circus strong man. Hope they didn't mind!
