Have you ever done something without any intentions of doing so that ended up as a total surprise? This is the case with this. This was not an intended painting of any kind. In truth was a sheet of paper with practice marks and brush strokes between palette knife and flat brush. I went to pitch in the trash and it grabbed me. The more I looked at what was sitting on that piece of paper, the more I liked it. A surprise abstract to my eyes that for me is captivating and I know very little about abstracts. Even my family fell in love with it which is a great surprise considering they lean towards realism in painting.
For me this represents my love of forests and exploring what hidden treasures nature has to share with us.
