New Abstract painting...

This piece is super texturiffic! I couldn't quite scan ALL of it in due to technological size restraints, but you get the idea.

I started this piece by glopping down a few colors of paint and worked out some basic shapes. Then I made a bunch of circles and spirals with the brush in the wet acrylic base. Hours of finger painting (on a heavily textured base is a joy) happened until I got the colors the way I liked them. To finish, I threw in some light to heavy outlines and signed the darn piece.

I'm interested in what imagery you get from it. If the painting were an emotion, what would it be?

Another day at the office. -R

I'll have to come over with my 50mm 1.4 and get some low depth of field shots to pick up the texture!

I know this is super-cheesy, but I think rebirth. Kind of like a phoenix rising from the ashes sort of thing.

Oh yes!
