Took another older abstract and reworked it with new color. It feels kind of wild and bright and lively. Abstracts generally are not as popular with the public as watercolors, but I love doing them and at times am even a bit satisfied with the results. I was working blobs of acrylic in with a palette knife, and decided it needed shapes found from cut-up magazines. Was fun to mix it up, ignore the rules, let go of trying to keep things orderly. Kind of like life — sometimes it’s necessary to forget about getting all my ducks in a row. They never stay there, anyways.
