MY COMMENTS:
This is a semi experimental painting using just painting knives. I set out to paint a purely abstract work, but as it came out I thought that thre was an impression of a deep forest, so I have called it Forest.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Have other people who have started to paint in a purely abstract way, found that there painting ends up semi-representational.

always, representational sneaks in, especially in verticals, you're going to think trees or buildings.
with oils being so pliable you can help the idea grow, or carve it away into a less representational read.
