Hope you enjoy it!
I tried several approaches, but nothing was working for me. So, I just started playing with paint and my palette knife. I was envisioning a sunset over the landscape, choosing colors that "felt" right for me.
You can see how deep the canvas is in this pic. I actually love these big clunky canvases on shelves rather than walls, and I like the feel of the rough clunky paint.
All in all, it was a fun painting day.
The Outer Banks on North Carolina have been on my mind. I was thinking of Ocracoke when I painted this little abstract seascape.
Some days I just want to smush paint around. I can almost understand Vincent eating it. So creamy, so smooth, so beautiful!
One would think, that abstract painting would be so easy. My two year old can do that!
You may be right! Two year olds are fearless. They know not the meaning of failure.
Nothing is more frightening than a blank canvas when you have no plan. The idea of abstract seems to appeal to every painter, but the reality is quite something else.
This piece is one of my favorites, using the cross composition.
