Abstract

All I did on this painting today was the rope. Then I finished up this abstract I've been working on for a few days.

I started out with a line drawing, copying a doodle I've been working on.  I was waffling between blacks and white and gray, or pastel colors.  I decided on pastels!  Ummm.....  not exactly pastel is it?  It didn't want to evolve that way.  I seem to gravitate towards bright.  This is how it looked Tuesday when I left it at Deb's.

This is how it was finished up today.  It makes me feel happy.  How does it make you feel?  Cody says he sees a monster with tentacles and giant sharp teeth, but not scary.  What do you see?

Hi!
It's so nice to meet a fellow Color Enthusiast! I'm glad you stopped by, and thank you for your nice comments!

I love your girl swinging on the rope. Her dress is beautiful!

Your abstract is great, and it reminds me of waves and an octopus in the ocean! Great color!!!

A very interesting abstract and a great blend of colours. Thoughtful.

Both are such powerful works. I love the mystery of thevrope and the harmony of the abstract.
