Shake It Off - acrylic on canvas, 24"x 30"

This is an addition to a series I started last year. The background IRL is much lighter in color than it appears in this image.
C&C please.

A good flowing imagery made up of many particles, dots, and dashes, reminiscent of running cougars and leopards. That's my take anyway. Love it, Jim!

Strongly suggests living forms. My paradoleia is finding a dancing human figure. The painting shares a title with a song by Taylor Swift, so that probably has something to do with it.

Thanks Kay.

Thanks for this, Cliff. I actually painted a dancing human figure!

The title nailed this colored cyclone perfectly.

Thanks for looking boafamily, Katie and Susan. Yes it's different.
I know to some it appears that I am all over the place stylistically.

I'm very restless creatively and paint in what I consider to be three styles, Abstract expression, Abstract Landscapes, and Contemporary. It probably does not help me to sell, since I can't be pigeonholed, but I feel I must be true to my creative wanderlust.

That is the best thing about artistic expression.........you can take where you want and in a way that moves you, in the moment.
Love the palette you chose. It really draws in the eye.

Before I read the comments I was thinking I saw a pregnant figure. Great color and texture.
