Moon Over the Plains
I know, not what you expected, huh?! In fact totally out there. And yet, I've been thinking about doing abstract for years and years! I just thought, for some strange reason, that it needed to be in acrylic (why? I don't know). But this is oil. What happened was - I painted a real stinker the other day (realism). And after I wiped it off I thought - I'll just play with my paint on this panel. I put down some random colors, but the further I got the worse it looked. So I wiped it off again. This time, the wipe off wasn't complete and the few colors that remained were somewhat interesting. So I put more down, and came up with this!
I have no idea what the market is for this kind of work, especially since you're all used to what I normally do. So I am starting the bidding at $1. I will say, I've done a couple more since and I LOVE the process! I don't plan to stop painting what I normally paint, but I will continue to explore.
