New Abstract Painting

I panted this abstract on Monday night and it is a different painting for me - it is on paper and very Rauschenberg looking - I think I like it and this is the direction I want to go for now. I feel the paintings I have in the ABstract EXpressionist Gallery represent a "body" of work - all done during the same time period, related in look, colors and feel - but I am ready to move on. I like the fact that I have this body of work to show (if I am lucky) so it is time to experiment and grow.

I have been intrigued by the idea of more edgy work - I am trying to discover just what this means in regard to my paintings. In order to do this I need to experiment and play around and see where it takes me. Having a "body" of work will allow me to do this.

I get bored easily or I guess I should say I hate to feel complacent and feel like my work is becoming easy to do or too much of a formula and I need to shake things up. This was a break through painting for me.
