Abstract, a new venture. Kind of.

Some of my work is very loosely painted.  I like brushstrokes to show and I like to show “underneath” the painting.  By this I mean I like to show various stages of completion but in small ways.  Does this make sense?  This past summer (teaching is my day job, so summers are marathon painting sessions) I started leaning towards loosening up, less representative, even non-objective, but trying to retain my style.  I wanted to concentrate on simplicity and texture.  As luck would have it, I now have a contact in Charlotte NC who really wanted some abstracted pieces.  So, now I have an excuse to try some of these ideas that have been on the back burner.  I also have lot’s of questions I need to answer: is it ok to have more than one style?  Some artists only create in one vein because it is successful for them and their client base would not appreciate different work.   Is it ok to have more fun with the abstract than the other?  It’s not easier because the design and composition challenges are still there, but yeah, it’s fun.

Some of the pieces got whisked to Charlotte before I had a chance to take quality photos, so please forgive.

As always, comments/feedback are welcome!
