I've painted an abstract floral series—woo hoo!
I had no plan to do so when I began. You may recall that my starting point was to "make messy" and see where that took me. It took me first to a vase of flowers, and then I got the idea to create a series with the other three quadrants of my original "mess."
Sticking to my self-imposed commitment to a series was a challenge. Pushing myself to have a desired outcome, even though the particulars were up for grabs, proved to be difficult.
I felt a considerable amount of internal uproar as I worked on this series. I sense an overall unrest or turning point of some sort in my painting.
But, rather than let cerebral peregrinations catch me up in a swirl, for now I'm just going to wake up and smell the roses, so to speak.
