Alan,

Some more eye candy for bikevstar! I love it. Can you tell us how you did it? I just always find it interesting hearing about how people went about creating their art. I love this. You really have a knack for abstract. I'm so envious! Really nice piece of work!!

I had to look at it again! Alan, this is truly a great piece. Please tell me that you're framing all your work?? Do you have any more up your sleeve?? It's properly titled. It makes you feel happy to look at it. Terrific application of color!

bike:D

Hi Kelly and thanks for looking....yes I do have more up my sleaves somewhere.... lol most of the ones I have done so far I have sold no one has really seen the last three I have just done....as for how I did it....well its a build up of layers in this case it was going nowhere so I gessoed it black and put the colors on....some of it is stamped.....and there it was....again thanks for looking and commenting...

I like the drips. Thanks for sharing your process. Like Bike, I love hearing/seeing how paintings evolve and the different approaches that people take in creating them.

Tis an extremely, emotional image Alan.

Like an exploded heart. Reminds me of Love. Improbable yet destined. Irracticly perfect. Broken as a cloud.

Tis a lucky wall that this painting gets to hang on.:angel:

I'm with gar and ejfarrae; the bottom is incredible and it reminds me of an exploded heart
there's an incredible fragile effect going on with the thinning of the color at the bottom
my eye keeps on going back there for a swim
