This abstract reminded me of extreme video gaming. A horde of competitors jam the freeway as they descend upon Paradise City. Some will make it to the next level, some will burn out. This is real life, not a video game. Feel the energy!
I love to create abstract paintings, both nonobjective as well as representational abstracts like this. I am known best for my impressionist paintings, but today I thought I would show you a different side of my work.
The foundation of every good realistic painting is a solid abstract composition. Sometimes the abstract is better than a realistic piece could ever be and I felt this is one of those times.
Rather than capturing specific details I simply wanted have fun with the surface texture of the paint and work with the design and color of the piece. I stayed loose and free, and I allowed the tactile effects of the paint to take on a life of its own. (Look at the gobs of thick, juicy paint in the detail photos.) When I arrived at this point, I was finished. I felt that any additional work would kill the energy of the piece.
