Here is a new painting using a grid, but breaking up the grid. I am trying to use lots of color and texture.
I have been struggling with getting a good photo of this painting. For some reason it has been hard to get the colors right. The abstraction reminds me of earth, sky,and water.
Here is a small oil pastel that I did several years ago. As I am cleaning out and either finishing or getting rid of, I found that I see a thread of abstraction reaching back into years past. This actually looks like what I am doing now; I am counting this as finished.
I have been painting for many years in several different media and have won awards in juried shows and had one-woman and small group shows. The learning aspect of painting has been a great joy and driving force for me. For the past few years I have become interested in abstract work and have been studying how to understand abstract work and how to do it.
