This piece has never been named though I believe I should have.
Labeling is simply Abstract Thought 93.
The basic composition for the background was roughly composed directly on the canvas using a palette knife.
A combination of brush and palette knife where used the thickly apply

paint. Water was used to thin, distort, run some of the paint.
Dry brushing was used for the bird.
Thank you for taking the time to view on of my pieces,
Theo Dapore
Any comments pro or con would be appreciated.

I really like this artwork! Great techniques. Colors used really gives a sense of depth to this piece. The bird is outstanding and really contrast with the abstract BG. Since you asked for Pros & Cons I would only nitpick the long lower vertical line. Maybe fading it in some spots would make that water look even better! Hope to see more of your artworks! Impressive.........TJ
