No rules. Leaps in the dark - Abstract painting.


“The artist never entirely knows — We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark” ~Agnes de Mille

Leap after leap in the dark is turning out to be the best art journey ever for me because I did not let rules or expectations direct me. 
A canvas that began as abstract colors and lines gradually took shape, actually pretty fast -  because I was so charged and was able to get it all done in a day. This is how it began, 

 It went thorough several stages when I just let my hand take over as it became clearer to me that what I was finally creating was a plant growing in this jar. 




Until, finally this is my finished painting. :-)

I called it my succulents in a jar. Maybe a terrarium? 
I loved painting completely from my imagination, watching it materialize as if from thin air!
It is 18"x 13" acrylic on canvas. 

I am linking to my very talented friends on PPF, AJED, CED, Friday Sketches.

  5. It is interesting you started from the abstract and went the opposite way..just like the early Cubists. I enjoyed seeing the progression.
