Abstract Aberration!

"The Dress"
5" x 6.5" acrylic and collage on paper

This is my third and last abstract piece for the week. As I was painting it...an orange dress appeared in the middle! Must have been Halloween spooks still lurking in my studio.

I painted it on a paper surface I had prepared in Shari Beaubien's workshop a couple of months ago. I loved the textures that developed using her techniques. Hope I did ya proud, Shari!

Have a great weekend everyone! xo

Hi Linda:

I just took a peek through your blog to catch up. I love the picture of Abby as Dracula!! What a sweetheart.

I also really love your new abstract. The pepto pink and bright orange really pull the eyes in.

Miss Linda! You've been a busy gal. Love the dog Santas and the calendar. Great idea. And these abstractions! Beautiful.

Thinking of you in chilly Colorado. Looking at a mountain sounds good right about now....

LOL... you ALWAYS do me proud, Linda! Glad you're using those papers and I love the composition. And I forgot to tell you, but BIG CONGRATS on the sale of "Happy House"!! Hugs, Shari
