I've been working on a 30" x 40" painting of the forest from studies I made while in the NC mountains last month... working to keep it abstracted. At one point I was dissatisfied with it... turned it upside down to study the composition. Then worked on it upside down for awhile. When I turned it back "rightside up" it looked much better! Go figure (have to trick that left brain sometimes I suppose).
By the way, my fun abstracted painting of Theo, "Model No Show" won a prize at the TRAA show in New Bern this week. Yay!
