Fascination 4"x4" oil
Sorry that this photo is blurry. I will have to re-shoot it tomorrow. The series of abstracts I have been working on start with a shape and move into more shapes and colors which suggest a mood or feeling or action which then inspires the title. I started with a big piece of gessoed and toned canvas and had my 3 year old granddaughter help me paint big brush marks on it. Then, after it dried, I cut the canvas into 4"x4" squares and worked each one as I was inspired by the remaining marks of the original. This was a "fascinating" process for me and really loosened me up and helped me see where I would like to go with abstracts. I may take all of this series and frame them together as a mosaic. I will post it if I decide to do this.
