A few days ago, I stood in front of perfect rows of sunflowers. They were glorious and impervious to the humid 90oF temperature. I wilted. Not pleased with my work, even after a later attempt to resolve the jarring yellows and greens, I merged my palette puddles and painted over the offending field. I don’t do this often, but it’s usually liberating. This time however I found particular delight in the paint-over process and the design that emerged, so – my first “Abstract”!
Here’s the before and after…
