Rockport Rocker

Lately I am hearing the call of abstract design and more lively paint application. I can only imagine as maybe Bob Dylan was writing his 100th folk song on an acoustic guitar he felt the need to plug in an electric guitar. Now I'm not comparing myself to the great Bob Dylan but as an analogy, it's someone most of us know about. Plus it works.__________________________________ The speed of paint application and relating colors is getting me really excited because I'm just not sure what adventure the paint will bring me on or what color harmony I will find hiding in those tubes of paint. I realize that the piece shown is not a breakthrough in abstract anything but there is a start n this piece where either my boredom with local color or my excitement with relating colors was sparked. I hope to write more on this topic soon, when I have a little more time. I haven't posted in awhile so I thought I would check in and share where I'm at.

All your trademark characteristics are here. Great values, vibrant colour and lovely brushstrokes. Interested to see how you develop your ideas about abstraction.
