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.
