|Windswept, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $50|
Another shot at abstracting the landscape. I used layers of paint, a palette knife and my trusty squeegee to create the loose shapes and color variations. For me, the hardest thing about a painting like this is letting the rough edges and splotches of color be - my natural inclination is to define, refine and confine. I titled it "Windswept" because both the tree and the landscape feel windswept to me - kind of a harsh, scoured look, yet oddly beautiful in a craggy, minimalist kind of way.
