Abstracts, when all fails, is my go to medium. I just love playing with the shapes and colors. I have to be in the mood for it but sometimes it just happens. It is a way to express your feeling, mood and emotion....the perfect outlet.
Today I felt like that moody deep artist....with something to prove to myself ! This was the kind of work I did about 7 years ago, before I started with watercolors. For me acrylics are much easier to use than watercolor when creating abstracts. I like the way the acrylic brush strokes feel.... stronger and bolder.

Here are my progress steps during the day. Had a lot of fun with it, once I got past "TRYING" to paint the boat.
When I posted it on facebook I received the funniest comment... Comment: "Quite a journey... I'm guessing that dang boat got you pretty ticked!" Me: "Looks a bit stressed huh? Should have named it CAN YOU FIND THE BOAT?"
What I started with, is definitely not what I had planned!
