Abstract Orange

Abstract Orange, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6"
Day 29 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.  I was looking at some photos of paintings that integrate representational and abstract elements and was inspired to try this out.  It was clearly a lot of fun. So much so, that I plan to do another one tomorrow.  I can see that getting the balance and location of the abstract elements right can be tricky.

Artist's Note (March 19):  I wasn't entirely satisfied with how this painting came out, so I made a bunch of changes to it.  It is now called Orange on a Windowsill. You can find it in a subsequent post, as well as on my web site and in my Daily Paintworks Gallery.
