My fun friend Sally came over the other day to paint.
We decided to try doing an abstract figure based on a
very washed out sepia toned photo a friend had given me.
There were no clear passages of light or dark,
so the challenge was to "design" the painting with shapes of color.
8 x 10
I used a gesso board, synthetic brushes, and lots of paint
to keep myself from any detail.
This was an interesting exercise!
With a little stretch of the imagination,
it almost feels like one of
Richard Diebenkorn's figures!?
PS. Sally and I both work with Alzheimer patients
and she gave my group a wonderful tour of an art show yesterday.
