New Painting for 2019

As with some of my other paintings, this one started life as something else.  The colors were similar, but that was about it.  You may be able to see some of them under the many layers of paint.  I have been working on this one for nearly 2 weeks now.  It has been taking a long time for the Golden Open paints to dry in this weather.  As this painting has evolved, it would sit on top of the fireplace in the dining room and I would contemplate about what I would do next once the paint has dried.  I finally figured it out this morning and I now feel that it is complete and am quite happy with it.  (The paint is still wet as I type this, so anything can happen once I leave it lying around for awhile.)  The thing about painting an abstract is that you can keep going on and on and changing it that it can sometimes be difficult to know when to stop.  It is pretty much how I wanted it to look as I had it in my mind.

I have now started something completely different just to take my mind off of this one. 🙂
