Don’t Look Back
I apologise to the friend who is indeed waiting for my abstract in blue, I promise it will happen, it is just a bit more challenging than my palette comfort zone. So here I am again back in that area using the same boring palette.
It is not very often that I am inspired in my art by the words of a holy book, though I do admit that such books do still play a part in my life. For some reason one such story was playing around in the back of my mind and would not leave. If I was to attempt an abstract in blue I had to get this story out of there to make space for thought.
So I laid out my usual colours and painted what it was I was feeling and seeing.
I have already been told that this is not like my usual bright and full of life abstracts, and I agree. The story was not that kind of story. The story I now remember was mentioned in a comment by Autumn Leaves about another abstract. So this is my interpretation of it, very different from the other one, The Sands of Time Move Ever Onwards.
I have looked at it, and looked again, and I have to say I have many doubts about it. The fact is, each time I look at it I see something else that fits the story, another aspect of the painting catches my attention. Painted with more white than I would normally use I hope it has some peaceful sections in it, I am aware the centre is very busy.
I share it with you.
