March Madness



I call this post March Madness not because I am a lover of basketball but because we are studying abstract art in class and madness is one of the words I have been playing with on this particular trip. While abstract art uses many, many of the attributes found in representational art, it is so easy for a more inexperienced painter to feel completely lost. Where are my rules? Where do I start?
So I have been painting and scraping off, painting more and learning all the while.
This  8 x 8 work has some of the essentials of abstract art........a place to rest your eyes, movement, variety and both soft and hard edges. I like the warnth of the piece. I see a journey. What do you see?
