Hi everyone! A friend wanted me to do a painting in mauves and purples so I painted the attached. I would love your comments and I would like to know if it would be considered a sort of abstract or just a strange coloured forest! Thanks, Mollyhttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/26-Jan-2007/91123-Mauve_abstract.jpg

It is a very contemporary painting with abstract qualities especially in the foreground. Didn't help much but that is how I saw your lovely painting which BTW, I liked very much. Nice work on those trees.

Not abstract, not realistic but figurative.:)

I love it too, very stylized. I like how the black path leads your eye right in.

Made me remember how cold it is outside right now. Very interesting painting; I would hang it on my wall. Good job:thumbsup:

Oh, this is beautiful! I love those colors. It would look good on a light leaf green wall. :D
I would consider it realistic, personally. :)

I see Dick Tracy's shadow on a stone wall in front of a forest. I like it. :cool:
