workin' on a mystery

Tom Petty's song, "runnin' down a dream" came up first on my "thumbs up" station on Pandora.  The lyric, "workin' on a mystery", was pretty perfect for this painting and post.  This painting started as a vertical one and was a figure from behind.  I was playing around with abstract design. I did not like how literal the piece was, so I scrapped and flipped it to be a horizontal piece. I am definitely working on a mystery because I do not really understand much about abstract or non representational work. Summer is a time when I can explore a bit.  So, there you go. This is painted on a 12 x 24 x 2" canvas.

  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Une oeuvre différente... J'aime beaucoup les nuances de couleurs. Une oeuvre guidée par la musique... Fabuleux !

    Gros bisous 🌸

  3. I can definitely see an early autumn sunset in the country overlooking a lake. A nice surprise, for sure.

  4. Beautiful abstract expressionism. I see land across a lake with reflections in the water while the sun rises or sets. It definitely has an air of mystery about it.
