Inspire Me Thursday - Abstract Art
My latest piece. It's mixed media/collage on a 24"x24" canvas. Though I still see "me" in this, I also see a new artistic direction coming through in this piece.
This canvas has a story too. A couple of weeks ago I was painting a very different image on it. One night I heard a crash coming from my studio space (never a good thing), and came in to find that one of my cats had knocked over my easel, and the canvas fell into the corner of my work table, putting a nice hole in it. I was pretty upset until my husband pointed out that with my textural style, I could probably patch it and nobody would be able to tell where. So I went for it, and since the canvas was already "ruined", I felt free to experiment a bit, and I'm quite pleased with the result.
Maybe I should let the cat into the studio more often. :)
