Textured Semi-Abstract: Blowing in the Wind


Blowing in the Wind

Here is another acrylic painting on a 16" x 16" gallery wrapped canvas. I intended to paint a textured abstract, but it quickly became more of a semi-abstract with some subtle negative painting suggesting branches or stems.  I had a lot of fun creating the various textures on the canvas. See some close-ups of the textures below:

    1. Thank you, Barb. I am afraid though that I keep going into too many directions...

  4. Christiane, wonderful work and like Barbara, I like your new direction. I say being versatile has merit. What maintains continuity is your subject matter and design. Also, I have Linda Kemp's book and love her work. How fortunate you were to take her workshop. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. Mary, it is so nice to hear from you. I am taking three half day workshops with Linda Kemp next week in Vermont. I am really looking forward to it. This week, I am taking a 4-day portrait workshop: this will be quite the challenge for me, but it's a lot of fun. I have not taken workshops all year, and now I have almost two full weeks in a row of art instruction!
