This little bit of craziness was SO challenging! The moon has been out in full force lately, so I've chosen a spot at the pond for an abstract nocturne! I am SO not abstract by nature! Pushing the masses into broken spots of color sounded like an easy thing to do....but I had to keep laying paint, overlapping and abstracting the shapes that constantly kept emerging! This required so much thought, whereas my normal paintings slip off the brush with very little "brain engagement". I guess this is part of learning, a painful, time consuming part. I could have painted three paintings in the time it took for this dip into madness! Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I did sign this, but nobody will believe I painted it. I will now return to my sketchbook for a little normally to restore my soul! This crazy painting is the 1466th in 1466 days.
