Day 26 of 30, Abstract

We're in the final week of the Painting a Day Challenge and todays' abstract was inspired by The Boating Party by Mary Cassatt. I used some of her push and pull techniques and flattened the space, using non-associative color for sky and sea. I can feel the distant shore and the mood of this afternoon sail and thought of this quote by Hopper, " More of me comes out when I improvise." Good luck to everyone participating, it's been quite the kick-start to 2014!

  1. I hope you hang, or display, the whole month's series in a line so you can see the progression of this exercise. For example today's boating outing is so further along to pure abstract from yesterday's.
