Hey there! Finally managed to squeeze out a new abstract...yay! The new Abby Creek website is about ready to launch so things have been hoppin' around here and I haven't had much time to paint.
I started this particular painting from a photograph (below) I took near our house. It took quite a different turn I think but similar in that the pink structure in this photo looks like a "door" to the natural world. Using that and the latest theme for a new show at EBSQ that I'm entering...I ended up with "Room 103". The numbers and the pink strip with the white lines (lower right) were collage pieces taken from regular old junk mail.
By the way...thought you might be interested in this book..."Merle's Door...Lessons from a Freethinking Dog". A neighbor of mine just read it and loved it...so it's now on my list. You can purchase it here if you're interested.
Can't wait to show you the new site...hopefully next week! Back soon...
