Daily Abstract Painting, "Texture" 20x16", Mixed Media

If you follow my blog, you probably are aware of my interest in abstract art.  Although I will continue with my impressionism paintings, I do have a growing desire to dabble in the abstract area.

This painting is a study of texture.  I wanted to keep color to a minimum.

I used molding paste, acrylics and oil pastels to achieve the desired effects.

Thank you for viewing my daily paintings.  Enjoy your weekend!

Just great. I love grey, such a sophisticated color I think.

Very evocative. I can imagine being right inside a special kind of lighted landscape here. Love the texture too.

Carol, I enjoy your blog and I love this painting! This painting radiates peace and tranquility. My mind's eye envisions a body of water and fog early in the morning. Wonderful!

Love your abstract, very sophisticated and minimalist. I know the need to paint abstractly, it's such a release to get away from the representational. This is really great.
