Bright abstract painting: In the studio March 21, 2007

March 22nd, 2007 | No Comments

My five-day experiment with the bright abstract painting now known as At Compatriot Be Glycerol is nearing an end. I started this painting on Saturday; here’s what it looks like now. All that’s left are some touch-ups here and there.

Bright Abstract Painting

I’m not sure how I feel about this one. It might turn out to be little more than a study. Stepping back from it, I see two paintings in one. I may not have achieved the “harmonic dischord,” if I may call it that, that I was seeking when I started.

I really enjoy pieces of this bright abstract painting, but ultimately, I’m not convinced that all elements are balanced. (Or maybe I just need some sleep!) Regardless of the outcome, I had fun getting to this point. And I’ve learned something from the experience.
