I'm not sure how I feel about this painting. It has a lot of mixed media materials in it - I'm just not sure if I've arranged them in a successful composition.
This painting is a perfect example of why abstract painting can be so difficult and frustrating. When you don't know what the end result is SUPPOSED to look like, you can find yourself adrift on an endless sea of possibilities.
What if I try this? or that? At one point this entire canvas was blue! In good times, the painting takes on a life of it's own and TELLS the artist what direction to go in.
This painting was totally mute. It didn't tell me anything. It just sat there pouting and petulant. Every step was a struggle. It may have to sit in my studio for a while longer until it decides to talk to me.
