"Rings" 15"x22"

My abstract experimentation continues....The hardest part for me is altering my color choices...like anything in life, change is hard, as is breaking the tendency to dip your brush into the same old pigments...sometimes the brush has a mind of it's own and it's right back knocking on the Cerulean Blue door!

These are really beautiful. I have a hard time doing abstract. I can cut negative images in my steel with a torch, put doing them with a paint brush just messes me all up!

It is all too easy to form habbits isn't it? But I don't see that in your work. You have something fresh to offer every time I pop in for a visit :0)

Your work forces one to have a second look. Very interesting.

I admire the abstract - can't get my mind to think that way yet - but the color play is really fun!!! What brand of cerulean do you use? It seems more blue than I normally think of cerulean - love it!

I love cerulean as much as my brush does! This one is very interesting!

It is wonderful to work with new colors, but I think I will always have the old standby, friends that I will return to.

Love the way your colors wash and blend, Annelein. I am just way too tight when I paint, I think.

Thanks everyone...I've used DaVinci, Sennelier, Schmincke, Holbein and Winsor Newton Cerulean blue...they all have slightly different qualities. I think the reference to Cerulean Blue was taken slightly out of context...because the blue on the painting is more Ultramarine, Peacock and Cobalt... I do usually reach for Cerulean first, but was trying to avoid it in this piece!
