This painting inspired my Looking Back series. I just love that bold orange coming through, and went on to paint several more with a bold orange bit. Believe it or not, I started this painting with an all-over layer of bright pinks. Then I worked into the wet paint to "tame" it. It was like riding a wild bull, handling the pink without being overpowered and without totally losing it. I just love the effect. It is very atmospheric and peaceful. I try to paint like my mentor Larry Poons advises, "Don't think; just paint." This painting reminds me of a recent trip crossing the Outback in South Australia. I guess I absorbed the colors and the feeling of space. I love that about painting in an abstract expressionist manner. It might remind someone else of something totally different. Let people see what they want.
The canvas can also be turned 90 degrees clockwise.
