These are such a departure from my straight work. Here I can let go of colour accuracy, focus and even exposure accuracy. Free to explore the interplay between form and colour, moods and emotions, line and gesture.
Finally I feel like my abstract work has gotten somewhere for me. There is now a solid body of work to draw on. The techniques have settled. I have a clear goal.
To create with light and cameras the paintings that illuded me my whole creative life.
This is the work I would have been proud to paint. Julie, this is the Raposody in Blue Series we planned to exhibit with your paintings.
