The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

Changing Things Up

I don't know where the urge comes from, but every once in a while, I like doing abstracts. I find they are also a great way to push paint around when you're in a slump with your normal work. The design for this one has been rattling around my brain for a while, and today seemed a good time to get it out of there before it damaged something.

This is oils on 11x14 prepared paper, done with palette knife. I apologize for the photo. The colors in the original are much more vibrant and rich.


  1. Monica, I adore this...!
    But you know how I feel about abstracts. :-)
    Great color and blending, my friend.
    Hope you have more of these in that creative brain of yours ~

  2. Thank you, DJ! This was a lot of fun to do, so I think it's safe to say there are more coming.
