oil on linen on panel
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.
