Bird's Nest Abstraction 14
This one has a little story. I was so happy about "Bird's nest abstraction 10" that I wanted to do a larger version of it, but with a slightly different composition. I chose a slightly darker orange, almost burned sienna as a wash on it, which made the start a little different than the original. The fact that I work a lot by instinct, and the bold brush strokes gives the painting so much impact, the painting took a direction that I wasn't prepared for. Since I had my mind set on one thing, I was unhappy, unsure about what I felt like about the new painting. I loved it one minute, hated it the next. I was about to trash it when my love came home from work and loved it. Insisting that I finish it, which I did. Now it is one of my personal favorites.
I think this one was a perfect example about not being objective and have my mind set on what it wasn't instead of it's possibilities.
