The design for this one came to me many, many years ago. I met a gal who was selling her abstract work/prints to hotels, and I thought that might be something I could do (this was long before I was making anything close to a living with my art). I hadn't done abstract before, so I started mucking about in Photoshop, trying to come up with something interesting there before I committed it to canvas. I have a tablet and stylus, so I just started making random shapes and colors with it. It took me quite a while to come up with something I liked, and this was one of those.

I made a whole slew of images on this theme, and then tried to paint one really big. It was a total disaster, and I promptly abandoned the whole concept! But recently I pulled up those images again on my computer and thought - maybe they would work small. And I think this one does.

So, this one is really simple, but I like it a lot. I can see myself exploring more with this theme.

I started with the dark lines on this one, putting them down sort of randomly. Then I put in the color around it, making sure to vary the amounts of MID and LIGHT values.

I've been looking on Pinterest a lot lately, for ideas. I find a lot of abstract paintings that I like. Not that mine comes close to what I've collected, but I'm slowly making my way towards "trying to say what I want to say."
