Palette knife release

When I work on my realistic paintings for awhile – I have to get a release from the realistic challenges and go crazy on a palette knife nonobjective abstract. So WA-LA! Here is my most recent palette knife. I love the vibrant colors. I dedicated this one to my niece Becca. Enjoy. It is 36×36, oil.

Abstract means the viewer can bring his own interpretations, right? Cuz I see Fireball XL-5 (one of my favorite shows as a kid) flying through a Hubble photo. BTW I like the red paint job on the ship. And if you never saw the show the ship is flying right to left.

Randy, I am finding my way around my blog – WordPress is so complicated. Thanks for all the comments. Right, you can have your own interpretations in an abstract. But there is also nonobjective abstracts. What do you think about those? I have no earthly idea what Fireball XL-5 was? That must have been on the same time Lesia, Susan, Karen and I were watching “Where the Boys Are.” I had no idea you were or are so creative. Way cool. I started “mosaicing” a mannequin but got bored so I painted the her like the Minoan Octopus Jar. Octopus tennacles wrapped all around her. I pretty much think everyone can be creative. I think certain people are gifted in that area. Most people have buried their creativity due to not having to use it. I am off to post some pics of what I worked on today. Have a good one.
