30 in 30 - Day 23 - Seed Study

To Bid

This is a semi-abstract study that I feel really happy about!  I like the repetition of color and the varied design of the seeds.  I struggle with an all-out abstract approach.  This seems to be the only way I've figured out how I can approach painting abstractly.  I have to start with something tangible, a concept, idea, objects etc. and then translate it into visual symbols...I can't just start painting out of nowhere...That is too much of an unknown.  This one was the third in a series of paintings on the theme Seeds.
