Acrylic on canvas 50x61cm. I have not named it as I don't want to influence what you see.
It is my first attempt at abstract as I normally have trouble letting go. Believe it or not I did this at our local gallery where I sit once a week. I had nothing to do and we had a bus load coming so thought they might want to see someone in action. I had ten people standing around watching. Wow what a buzz, LOL I also did a landscape called snow top while I was there.

I know what you mean Val. I have actually got it up on the wall. I never thought I would ever see the day that I would have abstract on my wall let alone be creating it. I go to a group once a week of about ten people. It is called Have a Dabble. Most have not done any painting before and if they have they hid them. So now and then when someone does gain a skill, we share it. (Me being bi polar and manically learning all I can from people like Nolan, Dennis and a few others) showed them a few things in watercolour and acrylic. One of the other girls had done a lot of abstract so I asked her to take us through what she felt able to share. So there you have it. HAHA I hope I did not bore you too much with my long tale.  :D

 8)  painting, Zilpa.  ...could be a school of fish rising from the ocean floor? 
Val, what do you think?  This should be familiar territory for you.   :)   I agree, my first impression was of people.

Yep, people for me too. People rising from the ground up. Spirit like -----
A few seconds later - hanging chili peppers drying in the air. Whatever it is, I like it! ;)
Just curious, do you feel your painting was affected by all those people watching? If people weren't watching, would it have turned out very different at all?

 :thankyou: Lillian and Denise, I don't think so Denise, I had in mind what I wanted to do. There were some snickers behind me but those same people changed their tune once they saw it finished.
