Horizon Series: Abstract 7

This painting has changed dramatically since I started painting on the canvas. I had originally thought the 18" x 18" gallery wrap canvas was great for a longhorn. I was struggling with it, after I painted on it for several days. I did have a good start, but composition did not work for me. Instead of throwing the canvas out, I started over. With lots of thick paint. I like the intense color on the very dark blue/black background. I like the way the colors pop out and have some presence in this painting. The horizon line pulls the eye up to the focal point. I hope you enjoy this abstract painting...I certainly enjoyed painting it after the longhorn went away.
