|the beginning of a new abstract|
Today, I'm still painting abstracts. They have evolved quite a bit from my younger years, but I still enjoy painting them.
I was reading a post earlier on the Mind, Body, Green blog by Susie Moore. She talks about unleashing your creativity and it inspired me to dig into my stash of older unfinished works and break out the paints.
It's not unusual for me to do this. Especially when I feel like painting and don't have the right size canvas that I really need.
I also decided to do something a bit different in my approach to working this particular painting. First I took a picture of it and then started adding different filters in Photoshop. I found one I liked and started to paint. I won't make the painting look exactly like the image I manipulated, but it has given me a direction that I wouldn't have normally taken.
