Forest View

Forest View
8.5" x 10.5" - acrylic on paper - $45
      I like to play with 'parts' of unsuccessful paintings, the paintings that never see the light of day, but live on in my giant photo collection. Every so often I take one of those 'parts' and challenge myself with the task of  'what can I do with this'. 

      This little painting resulted from such a task-challenge. In fact, the part of the unsuccessful painting that I liked was actually vertical, not horizontal. The original inspiration for the long ago painting (one that I have used several times, successfully) is this....
       The task was to abstract the part I liked....and I ended up with this....

It still reads as a landscape, I think, and frankly works either way. I was quite happy with the finished painting, and love the shapes and the palette.
