Abstract Number One, June 2012

Abstract Number One for the month of June, 2012, ended up being a much darker and layered piece than I expected. I was really surprised to see how it turned out. I throw these elements together and I work at it until I don't think I can ruin the painting any more than I already have. I let it dry and I come back a few days later and this is what I end up with.

I'm very pleased with this set. There will be six original paintings for June, and there are numerous "versions" that came about because I changed the filters around. Here are four versions of the same painting with some color filtering applied.
