The abstraction process

 studio new easel

So here is an 8"x10" version of the last scene I painted. The point is to boil it down to what is important to the individual. For me its light. Yes the car can add a light element. I didn't like the car. I think the desire to simplify thing is my main drive. There is far too much complication in the world and it gives me great pleasure to represent a situation in its least complicated way.

The top photo shows my new easel in studio. So far so good. How long til I destroy yet more mixing space. I'm guessing a week............

Thanks for moving the car. It gives me room to "park" my imagination. And it makes it all about the color.
Which I expect you'll schmear all over your nifty new easel space.
