Hi,
It's been some time since I last painted abstracts and posted on this forum. Decided yesterday to do a couple.

These are 10X12" acrylics on hotpress watercolor paper..

Glad to see you back around. I like your style and always enjoy the fluidity of your palette. How did the show go?

Thanks for your comments. I've mainly concentrated on landscapes which I've often posted on the acrylics forum. Show? Not sure which show you mean.

Critical signals, defying the mix
destined to dribble into eventual assimilation
clash to apathy, life in the struggle

I've enjoyed what I've seen in the past of your contemporary work. This incredible sophistication is its own kind of order. The chaos is its own language.

I must've misread. I thought you were showing your work and someone had requested smaller crops of your abstracts and you were cropping or something or another I'm always crossing my wires so nevermind. lol

Dammit, I KNEW I wasn't crazy. I've got the memory of an elephant except when I'm extrememly tired. This is the thread I was thinking about. I thought you were doing more for the gallery.

You do have quite a memory. I have problems remembering threads I read yesterday.
I continue to work with the gallery you mentioned. They carry my abstracts and landscapes. I intend to show the gallery these pieces also.
Thanks,
Michael

I see an old man walking along the shores of a sea and a sad woman at the edge of a cliff.

Balanced work and great colors. I like it very much.

Thanks.....I've learned that painting an abstract versus a landscape is really no different when it comes to balance and colors. The same principles of composition and color apply. I tend to think of a landscape as nothing more than an abstract with the shapes arranged in some cohesive manner that simpulate recognizable shapes in nature.

As for the old man along the seashore.......you have a much more vivid imagination than I!!
