Talking 2nd place in show

My first abstract oil, a tiny 9x12 and it won 2nd place in the oil category at a local show. Weee!

The juror said it might have won 1st if it were larger. I have stuff 48x60 but this little study needed it's "say" too lol

All comments welcome of course.

The title is "Terrestrial Swim" whatever that means.

"Ahhemm"... sorry, just clearing my scratchy throat. lol

I'm trying to go in two parallel modes but the non-rep way is more fun to do as a process!

(Love those new trees of yours btw)

Great News! It is wonderful to hear of some ones success. I remember not too long ago you were beginning to voice some serious doubt about the validity of your path.
Glad you answered those doubts and stayed the course and happy that you were able to receive a little confirmation from an outside source. Sometimes hearing other voices say what you already believe to be true can help you conserve your energy & apply that where needed. Don't doubt your ability.

Why that's an interesting piece

Those forms are very intriguing.. appearing and disappearing.. melting and solid.. although I see a lot of different things here, there's one thought that keeps returning: musical instrument.

I like, and good going in the comp

Congrats on the prize noble. I understand the pull between representational and abstract.

This to me is a point in time...a wave in suspension, sprung up from the air itself, gathering its forces to crash down on some as of yet unseen shore. The brief halting point between creation and destruction.
