More fun, less pressure.

Abstract, 15x22

This is one of the first abstracts I attempted several years ago in a class. I just took some of my favorite colors and made a random pattern on wet paper and let them run around and mingle. I placed different papers on the wet paint to make texture and some places remained white. After it was dry I painted the geometric shapes and lines with negative and positive painting. I've always enjoyed looking at this piece I think because the colors just make me happy. Also it was painted with great freedom and without pressure to "make a great painting". It was just fun. I need to do more of that, more fun and less pressure.
